Project: Coastal Sage Scrub Restoration

Description: The San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research will restore approximately 25 acres of Coastal Sage Scrub habitat, one of the most endangered habitats in the continental United States, surrounding Lake Hodges in Sand Diego County. Lake Hodges is the most westerly large tract of preserved land along a corridor in the San Dieguito Watershed that connects urban, coastal Del Mar to less-developed mountains 55 miles to the east. This area provides habitat for endangered wildlife, natural recreational areas for Southern Californians, and protection for landowners fearing increased fire. This project will restore habitat to resist climate-induced increases in fire frequency, increase the area’s resilience by preserving ecosystem functioning, and provide a corridor for species responding to climate change by migrating to more favorable climatic environments.
