Project: Manzanita Canyon Habitat Restoration

Description: Habitat restoration on 7.56 acres of Manzanita Canyon, which is located in the City Heights neighborhood of City of San Diego, within the Chollas Creek subwatershed which drains into San Diego Bay. By restoring native habitat within Manzanita Canyon, the project will increase local ecological function while also improving stormwater runoff water quality which drains from the canyon down into San Diego Bay. Habitat restoration will reduce the velocity of stormwater flows, improve native habitat within the City's Multiple Species Conservation Plan Area, and increase local resiliency to anticipated climate change impacts.
