Project: Huntington Beach Wetlands Salt Marsh Bird's Beak Outplanting

Description: Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy was previously granted funding for the outplanting of one new population of Salt Marsh Bird's Beak (SMBB) in Southern California at Magnolia Marsh in the Huntington Beach Wetlands. An initial experimental outplanting was performed in winter of 2015-16 and germination of 199 plants successfully occurred in the winter of 2016-17. This project will enable the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy (HBWC) to expand the initial planting by continuing monitoring activities and enhancing Magnolia Marsh’s upper marsh plant community. The project will install upper marsh plant species that can either act as a host for SMBB, attract SMBB pollinators, or help to buffer and protect SMBB populations from edge effects. In addition to growing and sustaining this population of SMBB, this project will assist with the establishment of other special status plant species, including Lycium californicum, Suaeda taxifolia and Juncus acutus leopoldi.
