It's summer and Friday afternoons don't have to be spent in front of the computer! Join the AIA|LA Committee on the Environment and noted Architect and conservation expert Clark Stevens as we tour the remarkable re-engineering and re-naturing of Malibu Lagoon.
In 2013, the California Parks Association in concert with a coalition of local conservation groups completed construction of the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project.  From a pre-construction condition in which the lagoon's natural tidal flows were obstructed by debris and trash, the project re-engineered the site's hydrology, improving oxygen conditions in the water and restoring habitat for native plants and animals while also improving the site for surfing and recreation at the nearby and iconic Surfrider Beach.
