The Aliso Creek CHAP Analysis Aliso Creek Ecosystem Restoration study encompased 691 acres. The site is located along Aliso Creek, located near Laguna Beach and the Pacific Ocean in southern California.
The overall goal of the Aliso Creek CHAP Analysis was to evaluate existing habitat conditions at a fine level of resolution within an ecosystem restoration context. After the baseline conditions were evaluated additional analysis was performed to determine future conditions with a restoration project and without restoration at both 25 years and 50 years in the future.
