Progress at the Wetlands

  • I currently serve as Chair of the Los Cerritos Wetlands Authority (LCWA), which is a Joint Powers Authority made up of numerous government organizations with interest and jurisdiction over the wetlands. The Authority serves as the official organization that owns, manages and funds the purchase and restoration of the Los Cerritos Wetlands.
  • Through the LCWA and the City Council I have worked hard to approve a restoration project that will allow the Authority to gain public ownership of 150 acres of wetlands in exchange for 5 acres of land. Getting this land, including Steamshovel Slough into public hands is a huge win for our community and finally sets us on a path to expanding this important natural habitat and open space



  • Definitely among our greatest accomplishments as Chair of the LCWA, Zedler Marsh is now the first part of the wetlands which is open to the public and houses an outdoor classroom and a walking trail.
