HUMBOLDT COUNTY- To preserve local wetlands, the California State Coastal Conservancy has been awarded a $1 million grant. The grant comes from the National Coastal Wetland Conservation Grant Project, and will be used to restore the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
The money will help raise the elevation of former tidelands and provide more salt marsh in the future, which will accommodate sea level rise. The entire project aims to preserve the natural beauty and restore 37-acres of coastal wetlands, which will benefit the endangered tidewater goby, Coho salmon, and steelhead trout.
