Salt Marsh and Upland Restoration

Restoring an Overflow Parking Area to a Viable Salt Marsh and Upland Habitat

Project Details

Great Ecology is working on the restoration of an overflow parking area to a viable salt marsh and upland habitat at the San Dieguito lagoon located in Del Mar, California. Our work includes acting as the Restoration Ecologist in charge of oversight for the installation, maintenance and monitoring of this highly degraded site. In addition, the project is located in direct proximity to an eelgrass critical habitat. As part of the contract services, Great Ecology has identified and is working on solutions to improve high soil salinity prior to plant installation to ensure better plant establishment. Additional project tasks include the identification of native plant seed collection locations, reference site locations, review of construction submittals, installation oversight and the 5-year maintenance and monitoring of this sensitive habitat restoration area.
