California Wetlands Restored

Back to Normal A Sanctuary Returns 


 


We often hear about wetlands being destroyed, it is nice to hear a story about a wetland area being restored. This took place in California after a 2 year project and 100 million dollars! This area used to be the second largest oil producer in California, now after 107 years of separation from the ocean, the earthen dam has been removed and the marshlands returned.  Originally this area was cut off rom the ocean when a duck-hunting club diked ponds to make it easier to catch their prey (talk about cutting their own throats!)
