LONG BEACH >> The last of a series of workshops on how to renovate and protect 500 acres of sensitive wetlands between Seal Beach’s Gum Grove Park and Pacific Coast Highway will be held next month.

The March 20 hearing is the culmination of a process to involve and recruit residents to help protect the Los Cerritos Wetlands near the San Gabriel River. This final workshop will look specifically at three separate restoration designs in order to finalize an outline to protect the sensitive habitat. The work is being facilitated by Long Beach-based consultants Moffatt & Nichol Engineers.
