The Bolsa Chica Stewards – the Restoration Team of the Bolsa Chica Land Trust – have been restoring the natural habitat on the Bolsa Chica Mesa since 1996. In cooperation with the California Department of Fish & Wildlife, the Bolsa Chica Stewards have planted over 38,000 drought tolerant, native plants with the help of more than 17,000 volunteers from 80 different schools and community organizations.
Volunteers are needed to care for the new plants and remove non-native plants, pick-up trash, and other maintenance tasks.
We meet at the reserve parking lot located at the corner of Warner Avenue and Pacific Coast Highway (the entrance is on 3842 Warner Ave, Huntington Beach). We start at 9 am and go to about noon. The tools/equipment, water and snacks for the volunteers will be provided. We recommend that volunteers wear long pants and closed-toed shoes that can get dirty along with sunscreen because we will be in the sun the whole morning. We also suggest a hat.

The Bolsa Chica Land Trust was formed in 1992 by a small group of Californians who believed that one of the last standing wetland ecosystems in Southern California was worth preserving for future generations. The Land Trust now includes more than 5000 members from throughout California and twenty other states.
