San Diego Audubon Encourages Public to Participate in De Anza Cove Revitalization Plan Meeting – 1st Public Meeting Since November

Compiled From San Diego Audubon

The San Diego Audubon hopes to see balance of habitat and recreation across Mission Bay Park.

For the first time, the City of San Diego’s De Anza Revitalization Plan Ad-hoc Committee, comprised of local individuals that bring a variety of expertise to guide the planning process, will review the updated restoration options.

This is the first public meeting since November when the City revealed three draft alternative restoration plans for De Anza Cove and was inundated with public comments asking for more wildlife restoration and resiliency to sea level rise.

The meeting is open to San Diego community members, and will be on Thursday, June 29, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m., at Mission Bay High School, 2475 Grand Avenue, San Diego 92109.

San Diego Audubon says it hopes to see the City focusing on enhancing wetlands and natural habitat in the area to balance the oversaturation of commerce and recreation throughout Mission Bay Park.

Mission Bay’s wetlands supply habitat for hundreds of local wildlife species, protect San Diego from climate change impacts such as flooding, and improves water quality.

ReWild Mission Bay, a project of San Diego Audubon to enhance and restore up to 170 acres of wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, overlaps with the De Anza Revitalization Plan. How the City chooses to revitalize the De Anza Cove will directly impact how ReWild is able to restore the sensitive wetlands in the Northeast of Mission Bay.

ReWild Mission Bay is a project of San Diego Audubon in partnership with the CA State Coastal Conservancy and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Coastal Program. ReWild aims to enhance and restore up to 170 acres of wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, creating opportunity for wildlife to thrive and San Diegans to enjoy nature in their own backyard.www.rewildmissionbay. org
