“We are excited to work with the Foundation and citizens of Oceanside to restore the ecological and community value of the Slough, as it’s an integral part of our local coastal wetland system,” relayed Justin Gamble, Oceanside Senior Environmental Specialist.
The National Fish & Wildlife Foundation’s Coastal Resiliency Fund is a nationwide program that contributes towards projects that reduce impacts from storms and rising sea level on nearby communities while improving habitat quality and community engagement.
The Loma Alta Slough Wetlands Enhancement Project was one of 46 projects awarded nationwide in the 2020 grant solicitation. The grant award is expected to be finalized in early 2021 with project kickoff near June 2021.
