Huntington Beach Walkbridge Ceremony Donations Bolsa Chica Wetlands

 

Seven-year old  Madison Makoff gave the first contribution of $601 to the Bolsa Chica Land Trust campaign   from birthday donation gifts her classmates and friends gave her (instead of presents) for the walkbridge.

 

That's something to be proud of!  When a press conference was held to present a check for  $75,000 to the State of California and Wildlife Conservation Board in Aug. 2007, the young, thin blonde with a proud smile rocked back and forth in her shoes as she stood next to the podium and adults cheered on, congratulating and thanking this model citizen for her donation.

 


The Bolsa Chica Land Trust  held a press conference to announce their organization successfully raised to build a new walkbridge on Warner Avenue connecting to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. The bridge is going to be built by May 2008.

 

Who benefits from the walkbridge? In addition to the public now having another access point to the Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve, busloads of school kids who visit the interpretive center on Warner Ave. can stroll on guided walks over the bridge to a trail that circles a huge body of water (wetland) that rises and falls twice per day with the ocean tides.

 

That water that looks like a lake is filled with all sorts of bugs, fish, snails and plants, plus migrating fowl and local bird residents that rely on this place to stop and rest during their long flights. In the evening you can hear coyotes howling, you may occasional cross paths with a snake and you'll usually see small ground squirrels scampering around the perimeter of the parking lot.

 

Open to the public daily, be sure to visit and enjoy the natural treasure located along Pacific Coast Highway between Seapoint and Warner Ave. in Huntington Beach.
