Project: Pecten Reef Habitat Restoration and Enhancement

Description: The Coastal Conservancy awarded a grant to the Laguna Canyon Foundation to implement the Pecten Reef Habitat Restoration and Enhancement Project within Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park, a park owned by the County of Orange and managed by OC Parks in the City of Aliso Viejo. The Pecten Reef restoration project will restore native plant species through the installation of container plants, cuttings, and seedings in order to improve watershed capability, reduce erosion, and increase filtration and groundwater recharge. The goal is to help create habitat for critically endangered species, improve the area as a wildlife corridor, and protect sensitive, exposed archaeological and paleontological resources by increasing native vegetative cover.
