Bolsa Chica Land Trust

The mission of the Bolsa Chica Land Trust is to acquire, restore and preserve ALL of the mesa, lowlands, and wetlands of the Bolsa Chica, and to educate the public about this natural treasure.

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.

Bridge work in the Fall and Winter

The North lot and South lot bridges are getting much-needed repairs this Fall and Winter by the CA Dept. of Fish and Wildlife.  Work will begin on the North lot bridge off of Warner Ave. and PCH starting September 17th and go to early or mid Nov. During this time, the North lot bridge will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC and some of the parking stalls will be used to house equipment.  When the work is completed, the North lot bridge will reopen and work on the South lot bridge will begin with a hopeful January end time.  During the work on the South lot bridge, the bridge will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC.

Timing and length of repair subject to change.

Please plan your trip to Bolsa Chica accordingly, thank you!
