Cambria relies for its water on two major watersheds—Santa Rosa Creek and San Simeon Creek. The health of both are impacted by development, ranching and farming and management practices.
Greenspace has been instrumental in creek bank restoration, steelhead passage improvements and water monitoring.
Currently, we are seeking grants from the California Fish and Wildlife Fish Restoration Grant Program to fund monitoring of steelhead food sources, lagoon health at the mouth of Santa Rosa Creek, in-stream flow monitoring and silt removal projects. We also are watching developments at the CCSD desalination plant for impacts on habitat and water quality at San Simeon Creek and Lagoon.
