Come Celebrate World Wetlands Day

WorldWeetlandsDay2014

The City of Watsonville and Watsonville Wetlands Watch have partnered for many years on the restoration of the Watsonville Slough Trails. Over seven miles of trails near the wetlands offer an amazing place to get close to nature or simply walk to school or the store.

Planned restoration work for the World Wetlands Day event will include planting of just under 3000 native plants along the waterway to create new and improved habitat.  The planned restoration work is a part of the Watsonville Wetlands Climate Change Adaptation Project, designed to help the Watsonville wetlands and environment adapt to a changing climate.
