Document Description
NOTE: Review Extended Per Lead The Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve is located in the western portion of the city of Los Angeles (partially within unincorporated Los Angeles County), south of Marina Del Rey and north of Playa Del Rey. The entire project site is held by the State of CA, with part owned by CDFG and part owned by SLC. The site is bisected by and includes a channelized span of Ballona Creek, and it is traversed by Culver Boulevard, Jefferson Boulevard, and Lincoln Boulevard. The project entails restoring, enhancing, and creating native coastal wetland and upland habitats in the approximately 600-acre Ecological Reserve. The reserve comprises previously filled and dredged coastal wetland and upland habitat that would be restored by increasing tidal flow throughout the project area, removing invasive species, and planting native vegetation.
