Trail and wetland dedication to honor Senator Christine Kehoe

Released: August 06, 2018

DEL MAR, Calif. (Aug. 6, 2018) ­– The public is invited to celebrate the dedication of the Senator Christine Kehoe Trail and Wetland Buffer at 12:30 p.m. Sept. 8 near the new trailhead, located on the south side of the Del Mar Fairgrounds and Jimmy Durante Boulevard.

The $5 million wetland restoration project and trail, completed in July 2017, turned a former parking lot into 9.51 acres of coastal salt marsh and 1.67 acres of upland habitat (the transitional zone along the banks of the water) which is now home to fish and birds, including osprey, herons, pelicans, terns, quails and more. The wetland project also completed a key segment of the Coast to Crest Trail, which starts at Volcan Mountain near Julian, and will end at the beach in Del Mar.

Now that the planting of the wetland buffer and trail is complete, it will be dedicated to Senator Christine Kehoe, who served San Diego County from 2004-2012 in the State Senate, from 2000-2004 in the State Assembly and 1993-2000 on the San Diego City Council. She is known as a passionate defender of open space, trails and environmental protection.
