Northern Margin

Year: 

2000 - 2004

Size: 

1.5 acres

Location: 

Northern margin of the slough

Funding: 

Shoreline Preservation Fund:  $4,850 Wetlands Recovery Program: 28,800 (to Santa Barbara Audubon, 2 year grant)

Purpose: 

The project began in 2000 when a large Meleleuca removed tree from the wetland edge.  This tree was the site of a homeless encampment that was a problem for the Reserve.  In 2002, the Santa Barbara Audubon Society, with the help of the Reserve Director, received a grant for $28,800 from the Wetlands Recovery Program to remove exotic species and plant native species in a 1.25 acre area along the northern margin.
