Bolsa's spring nesting season is over, and our eco-cam is finished for the year, but stay tuned as we work to bring you a fresh online experience.

A huge "Thank You" to all of the camera sponsors and to those who kept it running for months, especially Jayson Ruth and Kelly O'Reilly.
Kelly, one of Bolsa Chica's CDFW Reserve Managers sent us this season recap:
2014 was the first year on record that White-faced Ibis have nested at Bolsa Chica. We had a successful breeding pair of Light-footed Clapper Rails!
Total number of Western Snowy Plover nests to date: 82 (this is a record high for Bolsa Chica!)
Total number of CA Least Tern nests recorded to date: 303

About Bolsa Chica Land Trust

The Bolsa Chica Land Trust was formed in 1992 by a small group of Californians who believed that one of the last standing wetlands ecosystems in Southern California was worth preserving for future generations. The Land Trust now includes more than 5000 members from throughout California and twenty other states.
