Expert Talk: "Huntington Beach Wetlands: Challenges and Successes in Restoration," with Dr. Christine Whitcraft

Dr. Whitcraft’s talk will cover research in southern California wetland systems that evaluates whether the plant, algal and benthic macroinvertebrate communities and associated decomposer-based food webs will return to a pre-disturbance state (as compared to reference marshes).  In an effort to reclaim degraded wetland habitat, the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy restored tidal influence to three marshes (Talbert, Brookhurst, and Magnolia) isolated from tides for almost 100 years.  Dr. Whitcraft demonstrates the potential effectiveness of tidal restoration for California wetlands and provides information about efficient and effective methods by which to evaluate the restoration of important marsh ecosystem functions, such as food web support. RSVP required! email: rebecca@bolsachica.org (714) 846-1114 www.bolsachica.org. Thursday, May 14, 2015, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM.
