EcoMalibu – Recovering and restoring the historical wetland in the heart of Malibu EcoMalibu Recovering and restoring the historical wetland in the heart of Malibu HOME Board of Directors HISTORY (Coming Soon) NEWS GALLERY VIDEOS PHOTOS STUDIES DONATE SHOP Malibu Lagoon Photo Gallery Video Gallery Volunteers News Rain Garden History Restoration Shop/Support/Give Malibu Lagoon Virtual Tour Photographed on October 23, 2015 Take a slideshow tour around the lagoon to see what may be in store for your visit. The Kelp Canopy creates a majestic entrance to the lagoon and a rendezvous place to take in the awesomeness of the lagoon while waiting to meet up with friends and family, or just meet others visiting this new wildlife habitat for the first time. Students sit watching the wildlife up close as they enjoy their lunch. Students get close up to the birds and observe the nature of their life style. This is the north path by PCH as you head out to see the main channel of the Malibu Creek and Pacific Ocean. This is the overlook by PCH. Here you can see the dynamic connection between the Malibu Creek, the lagoon and Pacific Ocean. From the overlook by PCH you can take in the magnificence and dynamic nature of this wildlife habitat while capturing some spectacular pictures. This is one of three islands that provide refuge and a sanctuary for birds avoiding predators, like foxes, coyotes or feral cats. Descriptive legends explain the nature, in part, of the area. This one is on the north path that runs near PCH. Picnic tables and seats line the north path. Students gather at the end of their excursion and prepare to leave. Entering the lagoon on the west end you’ll find an interactive model of the Malibu Creek Watershed that demonstrates the function of the watershed ecosystem: The rain enters the system and streams out to the ocean, only to return to the sky above. This western path is at the back of the lagoon. Here is an amphitheater for students to sit and listen to educators of the environment as they watch the ecosystem at work. From this vantage you can see the spectacular work of this wildlife habitat as it circulates water and cleanses it at the same time. Beside this western path on the left is a “Winter Clock” that measures the tide. Along that path are measurements gaging the height of the tide. In this photo, the path is submerged in the high tide. When the tide lowers the path is revealed. High and low tides alternate about every six hours. This is the bird blind where you can up close to wild birds preying on fish. This island is at the back of lagoon and in front of the bird blind. Many fish spawn back here and its a favorite feeding area for the raptures. This legend is located at the corner of the western and south paths. This picnic area can accommodate a large group and is beside the famous Malibu Movie Colony. This is a picnic area for visitors who wish to bring family and friends for a special occasion while taking in nature at its best, in the wild. The south path and road provides a surfer’s speedway to world famous Malibu Surfrider Beach. On the path to the beach you may meet birders and surfers among a variety of lives freely experiencing the spectacular nature and dynamics of this area. At this juncture you can walk to the beach or the lagoon’s watershed overlook. This legend is at the watershed overlook. From this vantage you can see the mountains descending into the lower watershed where the creek meets the lagoon and surf-zone. Needless to state the birds here are magnificent in their natural setting. A Snowy White Egret in flight. MISSION STATEMENT Recover, restore and protect the lower Malibu Creek watershed and historical wetland in the heart of Malibu. Educate the general public about the wetland and riparian ecosystem, promote and restore clean and safe water for purposes of recreation, habitat and food sources. VISION STATEMENT Establish a thriving ecosystem in the lower Malibu Creek watershed that creates a green central park/open space area that protects adjacent properties from flooding, enhances water quality and habitat in the heart of Malibu. VOLUNTEER EVENT Help restore Malibu Lagoon. Join California State Parks, The Bay Foundation and EcoMalibu to help maintain the newly restored Malibu Lagoon. Volunteers are needed to help control invasive weeds and to allow the recently planted native vegetation a chance to flourish. A large part of the lagoon restoration project is to dramatically increase the diversity of native plants. Please help the native plants take root. Malibu Lagoon volunteer dates through to the end of 2016: July 30 August 27 September 10 October 29 November 19 December 17 Go to the Bay Foundation Volunteer Contact Form >CLICK HERE< to sign up.

PHOTO SLIDESHOW GALLERY Click on an image to see that photo slideshow. Dance of the striped mullet- Photos taken 05-19-14 Striped mullet leaping out of the water at Malibu Lagoon are captured during a 30 minute time span. Striped Mullet can often be seen jumping in a dance to avoid predators as they are a common prey for other fish and birds. We hope you enjoy the Dance of the striped mullet. (Click on the image to the left to see the slideshow.) Oscar the Osprey – Photos taken 4/4/14 Oscar is the Malibu Lagoon’s resident Osprey. In this series of images you’ll see Oscar hunt for prey around the perimeter of the lagoon and swoop down on a fish (we think it’s a Mullet but that is not confirmed). Oscar is at the top of the food chain in the heart of Malibu’s eco-system. (Click on the image to the left to see the slideshow.

A temporary irrigation system keeps them fed with water while their roots take hold. It is expected that the plants will take another year to fully mature and the roots to strongly take hold. In the mean time, water rationing has been imposed due to the drought conditions California is currently experiencing. (Click on the image to the left to see the slideshow.
