Bolsa Chica Restored

A bulldozer reopened the Bolsa Chica wetlands in Huntington Beach to the ebb and flow of the ocean today for the first time in a century. The tidal flow, which will flood about 367 acres twice a day, will help restore the habitat, which is important for spawning fish and migrating birds. Officials are calling this the largest wetlands restoration in California. Patt speaks with KPCC environmental reporter Ilsa Setziol and Dr. Richard Ambrose, Professor of Environmental Health Sciences and Director of the Environmental Science and Engineering program at UCLA.
