A team effort: collaborating with the City of Long Beach and LCWA to bring the dream to life

Four properties comprise the proposed Restoration Project:

  • The Synergy site, owned by Los Cerritos Wetlands, LLC; Synergy Oil & Gas, LLC operates the oil production facilities
  • Pumpkin Patch, currently owned by Lyon Living 
  • The LCWA site, currently owned by LCWA
  • The City site, owned by the City of Long Beach; LCW Oil Operations, LLC is currently leasing the site for oil production; Synergy Oil & Gas, LLC is operating the oil production facilities

The Project proponent is Beach Oil Minerals Partners (“BOMP”). BOMP was formed to facilitate the entitlements and acquire the Pumpkin Patch property from Lyon Living (upon entitlements) in order to restore the wetlands and consolidate oil operations.

“During the 8 years that I served as Mayor, it was a dream to restore the Los Cerritos Wetlands.  We took the first steps by having some parcels placed into public hands.  This project represents the last piece of the puzzle.  It will enable restoration of valuable wetlands, provide a beautiful gateway to our city, and allow for a close-up view of the natural environment.  This project is 15 years in the making and will be the jewel of the Long Beach area.”

Robert “Bob” Foster, Former Mayor of Long Beach

“Growing up around the Los Cerritos Wetlands, I learned early on how important is to protect our open spaces. This morning I went kayaking along the banks, reminding me of how fortunate we are to live in a community where big city luxuries and sprawling natural sanctuaries can exist side by side. I welcome these latest efforts to restore and preserve this ecological gem for generations to come.”
