Salinas River State Beach

A restoration plan to remove iceplant, increase native plant density, and increase foredune resiliency to wave impacts in Moss Landing.

This restoration plan guides ongoing efforts to remove all iceplant from the dune system, increase native plant density, and increase foredune resiliency to wave impacts.

Researchers anticipate ongoing partnerships with state agencies and local NGOs and land owners to implement this plan through a number of incremental restoration activities. Phase I of this restoration effort was completed between 2016-2019.

Project Partners: Central Coast Wetlands Group, Coastal Conservation and Research Inc., California Department of Parks and Recreation, Ecological Concerns Incorporated, Return of the Natives, Cypress Coast Fence, Point Blue, and the State Coastal Conservancy.
