Clairemont Town Council Endorses “Wildest”
Great news as the Clairemont Town Council has opted to endorse ReWild Mission Bay’s “Wildest” option for wetland restoration in the northeast corner of Mission Bay. Citing a loss of native wetland habitat and the expected sea level rise in Mission Bay by 2100, the Clairemont Town Council also noted in their letter to San Diego City Council on Sept. 17 that the Wildest option marked a baseline departure point from which to consider an overall revitalization of Mission Bay Park in a manner to ensure climate resiliency for the next 80 years.
