WAMSEC Re-Opening Celebration and You are Invited!

Due to noise and other impacts associated with construction of the Termino Avenue Drain Project (TADP), it was necessary to close the Wetlands and Marine Science Education Center (WAMSEC), home to the Friends of Colorado Lagoon's (FOCLs) education center.

Now that the TADP construction has moved further on down the road, FOCL is pleased to announce that the WAMSEC can be re-opened and the education programs can begin again!

But that’s not all that is being celebrated! Phase 1a of the Colorado Lagoon Restoration -- including the trash separation devices, low-flow-diversion system for contaminated water and cleaning of the culvert -- has also been completed. Plus, the dilapidated footbridge has been re-constructed.

Details of the re-opening event follow:

  • When: Saturday, November 13
  • Schedule: Open house (10 a.m. - 11 a.m), Ceremony (11 a.m. - 11: 30 a.m.), Planting of Native Plants (11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m.)
  • Where: the WAMSEC (on Appian Way between Colorado and Park)
Honored guests include Gary Delong, 3rd District Councilman, and Christopher Kroll, State Coastal Conservancy.

Hope to see you Saturday!
