Owned by the people, the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve is among the last of scores of tidal wetlands that once graced Los Angeles County and as the result of an agreement entered into by several government agencies in partnership with the Annenberg Foundation is facing a controversial restoration project.
Don’t miss this most important local issues meeting and hear from our panel about the proposed restoration that supports a huge mechanical demolition and alteration of the land, as well as the construction of a 46,000 square foot visitor center/animal adoption/hospital facility which are normally not allowed on state ecological reserves. Our experts will reveal details about the controversy over these plans and impacts to wildlife, and alternatives will be explained.
