Fund PWP’s work to preserve the wetlands, support tribal stewardship, and educate the community
- We oppose the LCWA’s Los Cerritos Wetlands Restoration PEIR which will erase and replace the existing wetlands without regard for the existing ecosystem or tribal stewardship and is being implemented bit by bit. PWP challenges funding and Coastal Development Permit requests for specific projects under the PEIR, such as the Southern Los Cerritos Wetlands Restoration Project and the drilling of boreholes in the wetlands.
- We protect local Coastal Birds and their habitat by revising local tree trimming policies. We are working to end fireworks shows near nesting sites which also pollute local waters and harm marine life.
- We work with residents and allies to report and reduce toxic emissions from existing oil and gas operations in the wetlands, the City and the Port.
- We investigate and report any desecration of Sacred Sites and host prayer walks and clean ups on the wetlands.

The Los Cerritos Wetlands is our church, this is where we pray, this is where we go to remind people of who we are. We constantly struggle to keep these parcels of land in a natural state. We get very few wins when it comes to land. Allow people to have these sacred sites. The Coastal Commission should not be afraid of developers and their money.— Gloria ArellanesTongva Elder and Activist
