Project: Cardiff State Beach Living Shoreline Plan

Description: Development of a restoration plan for eight acres of beach dune habitat at Cardiff State Beach. The plan investigates a “living shoreline” approach, which will both restore valuable habitat and also provide natural sea-level rise adaptation by protecting a vulnerable segment of Coast Highway. The project will be constructed using exported materials from the adjacent San Elijo Lagoon Restoration Project. The plan will consist of project design, CEQA analysis and document preparation, permit applications, and the collection of dune plant seeds to facilitate future restoration.
