RESTORING SAN ELIJO LAGOON For Nature & For You



 

Imagine the flow of healthy waters and an increase in wildlife diversity 
at San Elijo Lagoon. 
New trail connections will be worth the wait.

San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy will guide the San Elijo Lagoon Restoration Project. Restoration is part of the North Coast Corridor Program - called Build NCC - where significant highway and railroad improvements are underway, providing the opportunity for several lagoon enhancements.

ABOUT RESTORATION

The San Elijo Lagoon Restoration project is designed to be resilient with sea level rise in our changing climate. Reviving our wetlands means improving tidal circulation in the lagoon. Lands and waters will be enhanced for native plants and animals—including threatened and endangered species. Our access and education opportunities will expand as we continue to protect sensitive natural resources. Build NCC construction and lagoon restoration work will continue through 2021. 
 

 

LATEST NEWS: Fall 2017

The restoration of San Elijo Lagoon begins in December 2017. Since the Build NCC construction began in January 2017, we have been onsite daily to monitor wildlife conditions. Conservancy staff biologists, and Restoration Consultant biologists, monitor water quality and reserve habitats adjacent to construction areas. The restoration of San Elijo Lagoon will soon be announced, along with the timeline of scheduled phases.
