Manhattan Beach Dune Restoration Project

The Manhattan Beach Dune Restoration Project (MBDR) will enhance approximately three acres of the existing dunes along the Manhattan Beach shoreline from 36th to 28th Street and 26th to 23rd Street. This project will increase the resiliency of the shoreline through the implementation of nature-based protection measures, while serving as a model for the region and engaging the community through enhanced beach experiences, outreach, and education.

Partnered with the City of Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles County Department of Beaches and Harbors, and California State Coastal Conservancy, The Bay Foundation (TBF) began implementing this project in January 2022, by installing symbolic post and rope and native plants. This project will continue in Fall 2022 with seeding of coastal dune species. Community restoration events at the Manhattan Beach Dune Restoration Project will also resume in the Fall. In the mean time, please check out our other community events!
