California Approves $18.8 Million for Fish and Wildlife Habitat

The 21 funded projects will provide benefits to fish and wildlife species.

The Wildlife Conservation Board of California (WCB) approved $18.8 million to help restore and protect fish and wildlife habitat throughout California at its late November meeting.

Twenty-one funded projects will provide benefits to fish and wildlife species, and provide public access opportunities to important natural resources. The funds for all of these projects come from recent bond initiatives approved by the voters to help protect California’s natural resources.

Top waterside projects include:

  • A $527,000 grant to the Crescent City Harbor District for a project to construct a new ADA-accessible restroom and enclosed fish cleaning station at the Crescent City Harbor in Crescent City, Del Norte County.
  • A $250,000 grant to the East Bay Regional Park District to replace two fishing piers, improve bank erosion control, and improve access pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act at Lake Temescal Regional Recreation Area in Oakland, Alameda County.
  • A $952,000 grant to the San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy to assist in a partnership project to restore approximately 180 acres of habitat in the Carlsbad Hydrologic Unit and the San Luis Rey Watershed in San Diego County.
