Landscapes in Transition:
Urban Nature as Centerpiece for Climate Resiliency

“We invite you to join us for a reception and special panel presentation to examine how Los Cerritos Wetlands and other regional landscapes fit into the imperative global discussion about climate resilience. We welcome our supporters, friends, and community allies to join us for this compelling event at the lovely, open air Garden Pavillion located at El Dorado Park Golf Course. Complimentary food will be provided from 5:00 – 5:45 and cocktails available for purchase. Panel discussion begins at 5:45.

Charting a path to meet 2030 and 2050 greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, Californian cities are leading the way to a sustainable future. Throughout the greater Long Beach area, there are numerous urban-natural landscapes supporting strategies to stay on course to meet emission reductions goals and be more climate resilient. These projects include our own Los Cerritos Wetlands.”
