Mission

The Los Cerritos Wetlands Land Trust was incorporated in 2001 by dedicated individuals who grasped the vital importance of defending Los Cerritos Wetlands from encroaching development while making local citizens and decision makers aware of the importance of this unique estuary. As an organization the Land Trust is committed to: 1) Facilitating the purchase of privately owned properties in Los Cerritos Wetlands, 2) Reconnecting and restoring this remnant estuary ecosystem, 3) Providing an educational setting for people in underserved communities to discover the wonders of southern California’s coastal wildlands, and 4) Building a culture of public stewardship for this precious resource.

Land Tours

We provide monthly land tours of Los Cerritos Wetlands. These tours explore exclusive areas that are only accessible through out partnership with the land owners. Tree different tours rotate each month and include the Raptor ramble which explores the 100-acres Hellman Ranch property, the Heron Hike which showcase a freshwater wetlands called Marketplace Marsh and the Turtle Trek which traverses the San Gabriel River in search of viewing opportunities for the threatened Pacific Green Sea Turtle.

Population(s) Served

Each summer we host members of community centers from parks located on the westside and north Long Beach to come and explore the Hellman Ranch Lowlands with our team of naturalists and environmental educators.  We provide a bus from the community center to the wetlands as well as a healthy meal for each of the participants.

Population(s) Served

We provide transportation to and from Los Cerritos Wetlands for third and fourth grade classes to experience hands-on environmental education field trips at Zedler Marsh, a small tidal wetland in Los Cerritos Wetlands. This facility is an outdoor laboratory where students engage directly with nature, explore trails and work with local college students who are budding environmental educators.

Population(s) Served

Zedler Marsh Trash Cleanups are hosted on 3rd Fridays of each month to remove marine debris and trash that flows down the 640 sq mile San Gabriel River watershed that outfalls into Los Cerritos Wetlands. These are community-based trash cleanup events.
