Let the River Flow, Los Peñasquitos Lagoon
Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve

Not only have we lost 90% of our wetlands along the Coast of California, the inlets to lagoons such as Los Peñasquitos Lagoon tend to get blocked by sand and cobble. This creates a stressful situation for plants and animals living in the lagoon and It also creates a health hazard to humans.

This short film takes a look at this issue and the periodic inlet dredging required to keep the lagoon tidal flushing and healthy. The films included interviews with Mike Hastings from
Los Peñasquitos Lagoon Foundation and Darren Smith, California State Parks, Natural Resources Program Manager.
