Supervisor to hike Bolsa Chica Wetlands

John Moorlach

Orange County District 2 Supervisor John Moorlach will tour the Bolsa Chica Wetlands from 9 to 11 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 13. The event is sponsored by the Bolsa Chica Conservancy.

“ You’ll enjoy the wild animals we’ll encounter on the walk,” Moorlach wrote in his Friday, Aug. 5 Update to his constituents.

Participants will meet with Moorlach at the Bolsa Chica Interpretive Center at 3842 Warner Ave., in Huntington Beach.

Participants are advised to bring closed-toe shoes, drinking water, sunscreen or a hat, a camera or binoculars.

Participants will see urban wildlife, take a guided tour of the wetlands and view exhibits about the history and restoration of the wetlands at the Interpretive Center.

Moorlach likes to hold nature walks. He frequently receives e-mails from constituents asking when the next one will be held.

Scheduling, however, is difficult.

“I try to find a Saturday when I don’t have a lot of board meetings the next week,” Moorlach told the Sun.

Moorlach called the Bolsa Chica Wetlands “a nice little treasure.”

In his Aug. 5 Update, Moorlach also addressed the on-going coyote problem.

“In spite of all the efforts of 34 cities and the County, coyotes are still thriving.  More news reports are appearing every day.  There have been incidents from Buena Park to Laguna Woods,” Moorlach wrote.

The Rossmoor Predator Management Team has asked the board of supervisors to create a  county-wide coyote abatement program.

The Predator Management Team has thanked Moorlach for his efforts to address the coyote problem in the Rossmoor area.
