Henrietta Basin Site Tour with The Nature Conservancy

Friday, March 9, 2018

Shared an informative afternoon with The Nature Conservancy, Heal the Bay, LAANE, Friends of Madrona Marsh and Senator Diane Feinstein’s office learning about multi-benefit ecosystem like the Henrietta Basin in Torrance.  In addition to collecting and naturally filtering storm water, the site acts as a haven for birds and native plants, and as a natural classroom for students.  Multi-benefit sites like the Henrietta Basin are excellent examples of how we can use public spaces to address concerns like storm water treatment in sustainable ways while educating the next generation of conservationists and creating much needed habitat in the south bay.
