Friday Photo: Early Evening Sunset at the Salt Marsh Reserves!

Pictured above is a photo, I took as we were walking on the paths of the Salt Marh Reserves.  It is a joy to have so much nature close by.  We often see blue herons and egrets congregate.

 

Paths were designed for walking and observing native plants and the natural habit of wildlife.  There are informative signs along the way, and benches to sit and relax.

 

It abuts the fresh water channel, where we often see mallard ducks and their families.  We can walk to the beach via the path.  It is a lovely easy walk.

 

Here is a brief history of the Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve, which was established in 1977.

History of the Marsh
Deciding to preserve part of the marsh, 11 families living in the adjacent Sandyland Cove sold their part of the marsh to the UC Natural Reserve System (NRS) in 1977. Later, when faced with proposed development, a partnership including the Land Trust, State Coastal Conservancy, City of Carpinteria, UC Natural Reserve System, County Flood Control District and adjacent homeowner associations purchased the remaining portion of this valuable coastal wetland.

The marsh is now a busy, healthy ecosystem filled with rare birds, fish, snails, sharks and plants. Nestled between homes, agriculture, nurseries, the railroad and freeway, the marsh is one of the last remaining coastal estuaries in California. Less than 10% of the historic wetland habitat exists in California, and this 230-acre reserve is one of the only places left where the land meets the ocean, providing an essential environment for numerous plants and wildlife.

 

Wishing Everyone a Delightful Friday!

Kat Palmiotti Further down the coast someone floated the idea of develping a residential community.  That land was bought by the Land Trust and ended all those ideas.  The community wants to keep the beach and the beauty accessible to all.  A

Hello Alexandra and Ron - paths often lead to discoveries.  And fortunately so do detours.

We have so much land in the USA, I am not sure why developers feel the need to scarf up every piece of land that is unique. Great job by those that got the deal done!

Hi Ron and Alexandra- what a lovely photo!  I can't think of anything better than a beautiful sunset walk than perhaps one to see the sunrise!

What an amazing scene that is, Alexandra.  The silhouttes of the trees against that golden sky.  It doesn't get much better than that.
