With the first unveiling of City of San Diego’s three draft options for the restoration of De Anza Cove, Monday, Nov. 7, 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Mission Bay High School (2475 Grand Ave.), San Diego Audubon urges community members and the City to prioritize wetlands conservation in the northeast corner of Mission Bay. Since 1994, the City has planned to restore wetlands in the area to benefit wildlife and local communities.

The City will host the Nov. 7 meeting to share restoration options, and the public is invited to ask questions and provide input.

ReWild Mission Bay, a project of San Diego Audubon to enhance and restore up to 170 acres of wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay, overlaps with the De Anza Revitalization Plan, an effort by the City of San Diego to revitalize the De Anza area within Mission Bay.

Mission Bay attracts more than 14 million visitors each year, and its wetlands supply habitat for hundreds of local wildlife species, protect San Diego from climate change impacts such as flooding, and improves water quality.

ReWild Mission Bay’s geographies, timelines, and goals co-exist with the City of San Diego’s De Anza Revitalization Plan. How the City chooses to revitalize De Anza Cove, will directly impact how the sensitive wetlands in the North East corner are restored.

ReWild Mission Bay encourages the community to be involved in this project to ensure the neighborhood voice guides key planning processes.
