This 2015 film by local film maker Michael Love, tells the inspiring story of the restoration of Coal Oil Point Reserve (COPR). COPR’s native wetlands and precious coastal-strand environment are home to the threatened Western Snowy Plover and Tidewater Goby. After a decade of care by COPR Director Cristina Sandoval, the Snowy Plover is breeding again and the protected and yet accessible reserve attracts a myriad of birds. Birders, researchers, and nature enthusiasts flock to the area to observe the wildlife. In contrast to ongoing tragedies of human environmental degradation, the film reveals the people behind this successful restoration project and their invitation to the public to respect and enjoy it.

Following the film, writer/director Michael Love and Dr. Cristina Sandoval will be present for discussion.
