Between the summer of 2012 and spring 2013, Malibu Lagoon underwent a restoration process to improve the health of the ecosystem at the Lagoon, which had long been labeled an "impaired" water body by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Lagoon was filled in by excess sediment and suffered from low dissolved oxygen levels within the channels, which threatened fish and wildlife. The restoration removed contaminated soil and trash built up over decades and re-contoured the western channels to improve water flows and circulation. Now we need your help to help maintain and to improve the site.
Volunteers will help remove invasive vegetation and occasially help plant new native plants.
Water, sunscreen, a snack if desired, and wear closed-toed shoes. Tools and gloves provided.
