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.

**NEW** Peer to Peer Ridge and Goodell Fundraising Campaign through Network for Good!

We’re launching a new campaign, our first peer-to-peer fundraising drive, to raise a modest goal of $3,000 towards the ultimate $1 million towards the acquisition and restoration of these properties. Bolsa Chica was once slated to be 5,000 homes plus a marina. It was the local community which saved 1,200 acres of Bolsa Chica, now it is time to save the last 11. Your support will assist us in saving the last pieces of Bolsa Chica for our community, for today, and for the generations to come, and it would be great if you were a part of it.

By becoming an ambassador for Bolsa Chica Land Trust, you will help us spread the word about Ridge & Goodell – that we have the opportunity to buy it and restore it for all to enjoy – help with financial contributions towards this effort, and you’ll help your friends feel good about doing good.

Getting started is easy to do, and it’s fun. We’ll even give you all the tools you’ll need to make a difference. With your help, I know we can reach our campaign goal by 2018-01-01, we can ensure 11 acres of upland habitat will be restored to include native grassland prairie and coastal wildflowers which will provide much needed foraging and nesting areas for our wildlife such as the endangered White-tailed Kite, Burrowing Owl and Southern Tarplant. This Native American sacred site will be saved, and a cultural gathering place created so that descendants may celebrate their culture and connect with their ancestors. The beautiful view over Bolsa Chica will be open for all to enjoy as the community visits this peaceful park to relax and bird watch.
