Los Cerritos Wetlands Steward Lenny Arkinstall stands atop a pile of rubble from the 1933 Long Beach earthquake along the edge of the Los Cerritos Wetland in Long Beach, Calif., on August 26, 2013. In 1994 Lenny Arkinstall, Founder and Executive Director of Los Cerritos Wetlands Stewards, Inc., made it his personal goal to completely clean Long Beach’s Los Cerritos Wetlands. After six years, he had completed his goal, cleaning 46 acres of wetlands and restoring it to its natural setting. Since then, Arkinstall founded the Los Cerritos Wetlands Stewards, which have grown into a student oriented, non-profit organization that specializes in restoring, maintaining, enhancing, managing and researching an assortment of urban wetland, marine, and upland habitats. Today, he works with the city of Long Beach to maintain multiple areas around Alamitos Bay and Long Beach, along with other areas in Southern California. See more pictures>>
