- Los Osos Creek Wetland Restoration Project
- The Los Osos Creek Wetland Restoration Project will restore and enhance 40 acres of palustrine wetlands and 16 acres of upland coastal dune scrub habitat at the mouth of the Los Osos Valley. The project will accomplish the following objectives 1. Restore native coastal dune habitat by decommissioning the upland homestead access road and demolishing existing upland infrastructure. 2. Improve fish passage by removing three perched culverts and managing invasive vegetation. 3. Reconnect and protect historic floodplain and wetland habitat and reduce sediment loads into Morro Bay by breaching portions of the levee constricting Warden Creek, decommissioning a domestic well, and realigning power lines. The Project will enhance and protect habitat for a number of sensitive species including Southern California steelhead, California redlegged frogs, Morro manzanita, Morro shoulderband snail, Tidewater goby, and Marsh sandwort.
