The San Joaquin Restoration Project began in Winter 2015 and is located to the east of the San Joaquin Villages apartment complex. The construction of this housing project included the creation of a bike path that ran through a native wetland buffer. To mitigate for the impacts to this buffer zone, the restoration project restored 2.8 acres of coastal sage scrub, native grassland, wetland meadow, and bioswale habitats. Over 20,000 plants, consisting of 53 species, were planted across the site. Workers and volunteers have also installed 50 coast live oaks along the southern edge of the project. This restoration will enhance the functionality of the protected wetlands and support broader use for raptors, such as the white-tailed kite.
