Ballona Wetlands Comment Period Extended

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, announced today that the Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project comment period has been extended through February 5, 2018.

The Corps also added that the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) and USACE will jointly hold a public hearing on November 8 (6 PM – 8:30 PM CST) at the Burton W. Chace Park Meeting Room in Marina del Rey, California.

CDFW, together with the State Coastal Conservancy and The Bay Foundation, has spent years working with the public and envisioning a plan for the revitalization of the Ballona Wetlands Ecological Reserve.

The Ballona Wetlands were once a 2,000-acre expanse of marshes, mud flats, salt pans and sand dunes that stretched from Playa del Rey to Venice and inland to the Baldwin Hills.

Today, BWER is 600 acres of open space that remains of the former wetlands and is owned by CDFW.
