SM Beaches Offer Great Opportunity

The Santa Monica Beach Restoration Pilot Project, a partnership of The Bay Foundation and The City of Santa Monica, aims to return a healthy and beautiful ecosystem to an approximately three acre section of beach. The project will evaluate ‘soft’ low-cost natural shore protection from sea-level rise and storms while providing public benefits and enhancing natural resource values.

One Santa Monica resident eloquently stated his hope for a “ribbon of natural plants and terrain all along the beach.”
