About the Event
The Los Cerritos Wetlands were a once-thriving system of tidal salt marshes, lagoons, bays, and alkali meadows, where the San Gabriel River flows into the Pacific Ocean. Once a vast ecosystem covering approximately 2,400 acres, it is now classified as a “degraded wetlands”.
There are currently two functioning marshes: the Steamshovel Slough and Zedler Marsh, including a number of seasonal brackish ponds, all with an abundance of wildlife. The wetlands is home to several endangered species, including the Belding's Savannah sparrow, California least tern, California brown pelican, wandering skipper, and the tiger beetle.
