Mission Bay Wildlife Habitat Project To Begin Monday

— A project to create 25,000 square feet of natural habitat for area wildlife and migratory birds at Mission Bay will begin Monday, SeaWorld San Diego announced today.

The effort is being led by the city of San Diego, San Diego Audubon Society, SeaWorld San Diego, Legacy Building Services and Agave Landform.

Volunteers will plant more than 20 native plant species, including wild lilac, island bush poppy, Cleveland sage and purple needle grass, along a footpath that runs 450 feet along the northeast part of SeaWorld property by the bay.

"SeaWorld has a long tradition of supporting habitat protection programs through volunteer efforts locally, and around the world through the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund,'' said John Reilly, president of the theme park. "Through this project, we are creating habitat for animals where none existed before.''

SeaWorld officials said they will maintain the area around the footpath and put in benches and educational signs.
