Our Hubbs trail along the Agua Hedionda Lagoon has experienced an increase in use due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Users have been taking shortcuts through vegetation to access this trail, causing erosion in some parts of the trail.
Our main goal of this event is to install several fencing structures in off-trail areas that people have been using as shortcuts. The fencing will help prevent erosion, and preserve our sensitive lagoon ecosystem.
Volunteers will also be installing a fishing line recycling station for local fishermen to safely dispose of fishing line.
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation (AHLF) was established as a non-profit corporation in 1990 to conserve, restore and enhance the environmental features of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon, marsh, wetlands, and watershed areas.
The AHLF operates the lovely Lagoon Discovery Center at 1580 Cannon Road in Carlsbad, where they hold numerous nature related lectures and festivals every year. The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation also has an award-winning Environmental Stewardship School Program designed for 3rd grades.
The Agua Hedionda Lagoon Foundation's objective is to:
-Advocate for the lagoon, promoting and assuring future lagoon vitality
-Promote balanced recreational and commercial uses of the lagoon and wetlands
-Provide strong support for public access, trails and recreational opportunities
-Develop and promote, through The Lagoon Discovery Center, educational programs to enhance community and visitor awareness and understanding of water resource and watershed-related environmental issues.
