Overview


Mission Statement

Our mission is to: Acquire, Restore and Preserve the 176 Acres of the Historical Huntington Beach Wetlands (between Beach Blvd. and Santa Ana River), and educate the public on preserving and promoting the habitats of local wildlife. 


Background Statement

The Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy was established in 1985 by a group of concerned residents and environmental activists concerned with preserving from development the areas of degraded wetlands stretching from the Santa Ana River to Beach Boulevard in Huntington Beach. Our first project, the acquisition and restoration of the Talbert Marsh (between the Santa Ana River and Brookhurst Street), was acquired in 1986 restoration was completed in 1989. Our second project was Brookhurst Marsh (between Brookhurst and Magnolia Streets), the acquisition occurred in 2007 and restoration was completed in 2009. And our third project was the Magnolia Marsh (between Magnolia Street and Newland Street) which we acquired in 2008 and completed in 2010. We also built an educational center on our facilities in 2008 to house our Interpretive Center and the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center. The Interpretive Center is open to the public to educate and bring awareness to the wetlands and how the community can support our efforts to maintaining the wetlands for future generations. The Care Center cares for, on average, 4,500 orphaned and injured wildlife animals per year. Additionally, we hope to acquire the last remaining marsh, the Newland Marsh (between Newland Street and Beach Boulevard) in 2018 and complete the restoration in 2020.


Impact Statement

HBWC accomplishments for the first 10 months of 2017 are: 1) received the Sea and Sage Audubon Society’s 50th Anniversary Vern Zimmerman Award for Conservation, 2) increased educational programs with local high schools to establish projects on-site for biology students to write their final papers for their programs, 3) established additional programs with local middle, elementary, charter and home school students to learn about the wetlands and get them involved/volunteer on the marshes at an early age, and 4) increased public awareness by speaking at county, city and public/private meetings. Our goals for the remaining 2017 and 2018 are: 1) acquire the last remaining marsh in Huntington Beach (49.4 acres of Newland Marsh located at PCH and Beach Blvd.), 2) begin the process to obtain permits on our design for the restoration of Newland Marsh, 3) continue our education programs for K-12 students; and 4) increase the volunteer hours to position ourselves for the future.


Needs Statement

Our current needs are: 1) obtain funding to install a living shoreline in our Talbert Marsh to stop an erosion problem we are having on the southeast shore. Approximate cost is $200,000.00; 2) obtain funding to restore approximately 2 acres of wetlands in the Upper Magnolia Marsh. Approximate cost is $350,000.00; 3) obtain funding for maintenance of existing salt marsh Bird’s Beak in our Magnolia Marsh which was planted under a grant in 2015 and for which we have seen plants blooming in 2017 and additional funds to plant additional seeds on two locations along the dunes in the Magnolia Marsh. Approximate cost is $100,000.00; 4) obtain funding to continue to run our Interpretive Center and Native Plant Nursery on a year-to-year basis. Approximate cost is $75,000.00; and 5) obtain and incorporate volunteers to assist with maintenance, development of educational programs, educate, write donation/grant applications, establishment of fundraisers, and assist in writing of business plans, budgets, and financial plans.


CEO Statement

Some of my duties as the Executive Director for the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy (“Conservancy”) are to orchestrate the functions required to maintain the 127 acres of wetlands owned and managed by the Conservancy. These functions include, but are not limited to: 

Education: Currently we have three (3) distinctive programs working with local schools in the Huntington Beach School District (Edison and Huntington Beach High Schools) and a charter school (Kinetic Academy).
 
Maintenance: The various act to maintain the three (3) existing marshes (Talbert, Brookhurst, and Magnolia) which consist of coordinating trash and weeding on the extensive shorelines. These activities can only be achieved through the use of extensive volunteer efforts by the local schools, churches and organizations which support our efforts.
 
Outreach: This consists of speaking at various schools, group meetings and events to further educate the public as to our mission, elicit volunteers, and obtain funding.
 
Fundraising, Donations, and Grants: As a non-profit organization the gets no city, county, state or federal funding, we are always working to obtain funding through a variety of sources to continue our mission, educate the public, protect our wetlands and the wildlife which use the habitat for their protection, feeding and nesting.
 
Manage: The Conservancy could not survive without the volunteers which support and work for us. The volunteers fit all age groups. We have K-12 students from the Huntington Beach High School District, a charter school of 300 students located in Huntington Beach and students for the Orange County Home School Group. Colleges and Universities, e.g. CSUF, OCC, GWCC, Coastline Community College, and UCI also provide volunteers to support our programs and projects. We also have senior volunteers from the Huntington Beach Tree Society and from a 55+ residential complex (Huntington Landmark) also located in Huntington Beach. Companies such as Wells Fargo, UPS, Edison, AES and Yum Corporation also provide volunteers throughout the year to support various projects on our wetlands.

Board Chair Statement

As a founding member of the Huntington Beach Wetlands Conservancy, I am pleased to look back at our successes since we organized as a nonprofit land trust in 1985, and I am most grateful for the support we’ve received from the many funding sources that have enabled us to acquire, restore and manage the precious coastal wetlands we now own. Those funding sources have included state, federal and local agencies, as well as private organizations. Opportunities and challenges continue for our organization: more wetland acreage needs acquiring and restoring, our successful outreach and educational programs merit expansion, and our stewardship of the Huntington Beach Wetlands in an urban environment requires ongoing vigilance and (sometimes muddy) effort. The rewards for all these years of commitment are tangible, however, in the form of 128 acres of a vital and productive ecosystem forever preserved for future generations.


Other Ways to Donate/Volunteer

We accept donations in person and mailed in (cash and check), Volunteer activities include: staff the Education Center, work in our Native Plant Nursery, coordinate the annual Coastal Cleanup, develop educational programs and materials, manage website and social media, assist in donation/grant work, assist in quarterly newsletters, develop membership/fundraising and outreach programs, and maintenance activities.

Programs


Wetlands Conservation, Protection and Education

Educating the public on the responsibility to protect and maintain the last remaining wetlands in Huntington Beach. Our program works with students in Orange Counties public K-12 schools, charter schools, home school organizations, community colleges and state universities. We perform our educational program at school speaking engagements, through the use of our on-site interpretive center, and through programs which allow students to work with their respective educators to learn about wetlands ecology, preservation, and protection. We also allow students to come on site to perform water and soil analysis, learn and grow native marsh plants, and use our marshes as part of their academic programs which require lab and on-site analysis in order to perform tests, collect samples and generate data for their papers/research.
Budget  $50,000.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Land Conservation
Population Served US Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
  1. We are anticipating that 25 - 30% of Edison High School AP Biology students will be developing thesis for their end-of-year papers which will allow them access to our marshes to perform their research and conduct studies in order to fulfill part of their educational projects for the year.
  2. Approximately 75% of the students from Edison's AP Biology students and Huntington Beach High Schools Biology/Literature class will be participating in a project on our Talbert Marsh to solve an erosion mitigation issue.
  3. Approximately 50% of the students from Edison's AP Biology students will be participating in a project on our Magnolia Marsh project to maintain our existing and future planting of an an endangered plant, the Salt Marsh Bird's Beak for which our marshes are 1 of 8 wetlands in California where this plant has successfully grown and will be growing and spreading in the future.
Program Long-Term Success 
  1. This program allows high school and college students to develop their research papers on wetlands topics. This will allow students to get a real world experience they can use on their CVs/resumes showing actual research and work being conducted on a working and established wetlands ecosystem. 
  2. The programs also for students to get a working knowledge on the agencies involved with acquisition, restoration. and maintenance of a wetlands/watershed property. This will help them in the future if they choose to continue in the educational endeavors as these will be organizations they will be working with.
  3. We allow the students to participate and learn in all phases of of our mission. This allows the passion of the students to see where they fit in, how they can use there knowledge, experience and passion to fuel their educational and vocational goals.
  4. We look for students from all backgrounds, experience and educational focus to help and show how students from all STEAM areas can work with us.
Program Success Monitored By 
  1. Educators and both Edison and Huntington Beach High Schools are making the short-term success be part of their curriculum for the current school year and we are making plans for the future. The curriculum includes proper techniques used for their papers and require the students to have continuous review of their project based on milestone and review dates.
  2. The HBWC will be part of the board to review initial thesis, participate in on-site research, and be part of the review process.
  3. The HBWC and the two high schools will have periodic reviews through the remainder of this school to evaluate the success and failures, develop steps to overcome failures and showcase and improve on the programs successes, and develop better criteria and steps for the following school years.
Examples of Program Success  This program is new to the two students identified. In order to gauge student involvement to the above programs, we have requested students volunteers to assist the HBWC in a variety of projects on all of our marshes and properties, which include, wetlands clean-up, maintenance projects, setting up for on-site events, research on behalf of the HBWC, and general projects. So far we have had 60% of Edison High School AP Biology students attend the events and 45% of the students from the Biology/Literature classes at Huntington Beach High School.

Protecting and Preserving existing and future endangered Salt Marsh Bird's Beak plant

This project consists of a continuing and new project relating to an endangered species of plant only found at eight marshes in California, the Salt Marsh Bird's Beak. The continuation portion of this project started in 2015 with a grant to identify a site on the Magnolia Marsh which would have the optimal chance of success based on characteristics identified in the seven sites where this plant has been identified. To date we have seen 45 clusters of successful germination of this plant. The new portion of this project will be to identify two additional sites on the Magnolia Marsh to plant and hopefully grow this endangered species.
Budget  $85,000.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Horticulture
Population Served US Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Through the remainder of 2017:
  1. Continued growth of the existing Salt Marsh Bird's Beak.
  2. Identifying two additional sites where we believe we will have successful future plantings.
  3. Planting of seeds on the two sites during this year's planting season.  
  4. Identifying and planting of additional high marsh plants surrounding the plant sites which will bring pollinators during the spring and summer.
Beginning in 2017:
  1. Monitor existing and new planting sites. 
Program Long-Term Success  Successfully continue the growth of an existing endangered species, the Salt Marsh Bird's Beak and introduce two new sites on our Magnolia Marsh. Longer term success will be to introduce and grow this plant in our existing other two marshes, the Talbert and Brookhurst marshes, and if we are successful in acquiring, the Newland Marsh. This would allow this endangered species of plants to begin a return to California. The introduction of the plant onto the Talbert and Brookhurst marshes will be based on how successful we are in the Magnolia Marsh and what we learn from this program in the next two years.
Program Success Monitored By 
  1. Continue monitoring and conducting water and soil samples of the areas where we have been successful in growing the Salt Marsh Bird's Beak.
  2. Conduct extensive research in soil, mineral content, proximity to tidal waters, surrounding vegetation, location and types of pollinators, and other factors which are identified to help and/or hinder the successful planting of additional plantings.
  3. Identify two additional sites on the Magnolia Marsh with similar soil properties, receive water and retain moisture as our successful previous plantings.
  4. Plant, monitor and modify processes based on the coming years expected and actual rainfalls to ensure successful hydration of the planting sites.
  5. Conduct quarterly review of anticipated and actual results and modify process/plan as required.
Examples of Program Success 
  1. Continued growth and additional plants identified where Salt Marsh Bird's Beach is currently growing.
  2. 50% of new growth at each additional site identified for planting.
  3. 75% of increased number of pollinators identified in each site.
  4. 4 new planting sites identified, 2 each in the Talbert and Brookhurst marshes, for late 2018 projects

Eliminate shoreline erosion in Talbert Marsh through use of living shoreline

Since 2010 we have seen and erosion of the eastern and southeastern shorelines in the Talbert Marsh of approximately .5 foot per year. The cause of the erosion has been identified as wind and water action causing waves which hits both sites. We will be installing a living shoreline along both areas to break up the waves, allow for a man-made oyster shell reef to be constructed which will provide further protection of fish as well as a breeding ground for the California Brown and Asia Pacific oysters which have been identified in our marshes, and a build up of the existing high marsh areas which should stop any further erosion along the two sites. 
Budget  75,000.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Marine Conservation
Population Served US Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  First 3 months:
  1. Identify projects where a living shoreline has been used for similar problems in other ecosystems.
  2. Obtain permits if required.
  3. Develop plans which can be used in the Talbert Marsh to minimize effect in the marsh.
Next 3 months:
  1. Plan project to obtain materials identified for use in a living shoreline.
Next 3 months:
  1. Prepare shoreline for project.
Final 3 months:
  1.  Conduct project
Program Long-Term Success  Eliminate the erosion problem on the Talbert Marsh by installing a living shoreline to break up waves caused by wind and water action. Increase the 
Program Success Monitored By  Quarterly meetings between HBWC, engineering partner and permitting authorities (if required) to ensure working to plan and updating plan as required.
Examples of Program Success  Successful living shorelines have been identified in several sites in California, New Orleans, and Baja California. The HBWC and our engineering partners have identified products and plants which will work for our project. Where the programs have been introduced for similar problems to ours there has been a 65% success rate. We believe we will be able to obtain a 75 - 80% success rate due to the nature of our problem and how much shoreline is affected. 

Restore 2 acres of Upper Magnolia Marsh to a working wetlands

In 2012 the city of Huntington Beach deeded 2 acres of property adjacent to the Magnolia Marsh to the HBWC. The HBWC has been working with companies which have easements on the property to remove the easements and pipelines on the property which were used prior to mid 1980 for the transportation of crude oil from a tank farm to the AES property adjacent to the property which was used to fuel electric generators on the AES plant. This project will be to restore the 2 acres to a working wetlands as part of the wetlands system owned and managed by the HBWC.
Budget  $150,000.00
Category  Environment, General/Other Marine Conservation
Population Served US Adults Children and Youth (0 - 19 years)
Program Short-Term Success 
  1. Agreement by the easement holders to remove the oil pipeline on the property.
  2. Plan paid for and developed to restore wetlands.
  3. Meetings conducted between various agencies and companies to obtain early approvals for planned restoration.
  4. Budget established and parties identified who will pay costs associated with removing pipeline and provide support for restoration
Program Long-Term Success  Successfully restore 2 acres of wetlands known as the Upper Magnolia Marsh.
Program Success Monitored By  Quarterly meetings between agencies and involved parties to identify successes and problems, modify plans as required to overcome problems, measure new plans for successful removal of problems, and monitor overall success of project.
Examples of Program Success  We have successfully acquired, restored and maintained 127 acres of wetlands since 1985. We have working knowledge on the process, permitting requirements, and federal and state laws and regulations which govern the restoration of coastal wetlands. And we have already had preliminary meetings with all parties and have 100% support for this project.
