County to fund restoration of 140 acres of coastal wetlands in urbanized Orange County

9/16/2008

"HUNTINGTON BEACH – A project to restore 140 acres of marsh in Huntington Beach will go before the county Board of Supervisors today for final approval and possibly $1 million in funding...

When the conservancy was formed in 1985, the wetlands area was zoned as a residential area and owned primarily by Caltrans, Southern California Edison and private individuals. The group lobbied to get the area designated for conservation and then worked deals to purchase the land – piece by piece."
