Coastal Cactus Wren & California Gnatcatcher Habitat Restoration Project, Phase III Year 1 Report

Type: report

Article abstract: In collaboration with Groundwork San Diego-Chollas Creek (Groundwork) and the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), AECOM was selected to enhance and restore existing and potential coastal cactus wren (Campylorhynchus brunneicapillus) and coastal California gnatcatcher (Polioptila californica californica) habitat in Encanto and Radio Canyons. Groundwork is an independent, not-for-profit environmental organization that works within San Diego’s Chollas Creek Watershed to improve the environment, economy, and quality of life in the area through local community projects. Over the past several years, Groundwork has been an integral part of the restoration and enhancement of the Chollas Creek area. The project was funded by SANDAG under the Transnet Environmental Mitigation Program (EMP).
