Event description
OCH Restoration at the Upper Newport Bay

About this event

On the second Saturday of every month, join OCH in the Upper Newport Bay as we restore the ecological reserve and the riparian and salt marsh habitats through invasive plant removal and native planting. These habitats are important for resident and migrating species year-round. With constant human related impacts, these habitats are in constant need of restoration efforts and we are excited to be able to help. As we work, important species information will be discussed relating to the habitats and species therein.
