Document Description
The Moss Landing Wildlife Area Bank Enhancement Project (project) would replace an existing perimeter levee within the Moss Landing Wildlife Area (Wildlife Area) with a new setback levee to protect habitat for western snowy plover (Charadrius nivosus nivosus) from tidal inundation and sea level rise; recontour an approximate 850-linear-foot section of the bank along Elkhorn Slough that is actively eroding; plant eelgrass in aquatic habitat south of the recontoured bank; improve public access and amenities; and implement managed salt pond and infrastructure maintenance and repair activities. The Wildlife Area is located adjacent to the Elkhorn Slough Estuary, which is situated 90 miles south of San Francisco and 20 miles north of Monterey on the Moss Landing U.S. Geological Survey 7.5-minute topographic quadrangle.
