Malibu Creek Riparian Restoration
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The purpose of the project is to restore 1 acre of riparian habitat along Malibu Creek, in Malibu Creek State Park, by removing invasive plants and planting native species to increase biodiversity, create shade along the streambed, and improve habitat quality. Malibu Creek is a major watershed in the Santa Monica Mountains that provides recreational opportunities for park visitors, acts as a functional streambed, and serves as an important riparian scrub habitat for native birds, reptiles, and aquatic species. Invasive forbs and grasses are prevalent along the stream bed, outcompeting native species. In the last 20 years, shade along the creek has decreased significantly, limiting nesting bird and fish habitat.
