Yosemite Slough

Yosemite Slough is a tidal channel along the southeast waterfront being cleaned of toxins left behind from industry and illegal dumping. The California State Parks Department, the California State Parks Foundation, and Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) plan to restore the wetlands, build a walking trail, and create an interpretative center. The first phase of restoration, completed in June of 2012, cleaned 7 acres of the northern shoreline. Upon completion, the restoration of Yosemite Slough will create the largest contiguous wetland area in the city.
