It is a beautiful time of the year to paint the wetlands here in Long Beach. We don't have many natural places left since everything was parceled and divided hundreds of years ago. This place is actually an old oil field that is home to many species of birds and other wildlife. There is a group called "Friends of The Los Cerritos Wetlands" that is working to to save this place from the bull dozers.
