Upper Magnolia Marsh Restoration – Through cooperation with Plains All American Pipeline (now Zenith Energy), work is almost completed on the restoration of the Upper Magnolia Marsh. The Upper Magnolia Marsh received a minor restoration in 2009/2010 when HBWC restored the Magnolia Marsh. Unfortunately, we had to stop short of a full restoration because of oil pipelines which have been on the property for decades. The pipeline was an essential component to the SCE (now AES) power plant until the mid-80’s when the plant was converted from running on crude oil to natural gas. Plains worked with HBWC to remove the pipeline and complete the restoration. The final stage is currently proceeding with retrenching the channels and replanting the area.
