MSRP is restoring seabird habitat on Santa Barbara Island by planting native plants.

The following pages contain information about the four different areas of restoration that the Montrose Settlements Restoration Program (MSRP) is focusing on in Phases 1 and 2.  Each page summarizes the individual projects and then provides an update on recent activities.  Any accompanying project reports can be found in the Publications section of this website.  Each restoration project is in a different stage of development and completion.

In 2005, the MSRP Trustees released a Phase 1 Restoration Plan explaining which resources were harmed by DDTs and PCBs and how they are being restored. This plan has focused on restoring the following resources:

Phase 2 Restoration

The Phase 2 Restoration Plan, released in early 2012, allocates the remaining funding among the Fish Habitat, Bald Eagles, Seabirds, and Peregrine Falcons categories.  For most of the projects Phase 2 will be a continuation or expansion of the Phase 1 projects.
