    The Sespe Cienega: Ecosystem Restoration and Public Access

    By Sheryl Hamlin

    Sean Kelly of the Santa Clara River Conservancy presented plans for restoration of the Sespe Cienega to the Santa Paula City Council on October 7, 2020.

    The project includes 265 acres owned by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) along the river and near the Fillmore fish hatchery and a large parcel owned by the Nature Conservancy. Maps are shown in slideshow.

    An ambitious project that involves Arundo clean out funded by Proposition 1 could eventually lead to low impact, public access along the river for passive recreational use.

    In a 2016 survey of 206 residents, high on the list was walking and hiking trails in first place and twice the size of second place.

    Mr. Kelly noted the restoration at the Hanson property near Santa Paula which will be soon open and conceivably these two projects could be conjoined. In 2016 an informative public event was held at the Santa Paula Community Center followed by a tour of the Hanson property.
