The Amigos de Bolsa Chica is hosting its annual brunch fundraiser Sunday to support efforts to educate the public on the wetlands.
The event will take place at 10:30 a.m. at the Seacliff Country Club, 6501 Palm Ave., Huntington Beach. Tickets are $55 per person.
Money raised at the event will go toward the group's educational programs, including a new effort that will have docents traveling to local schools to show an educational video on the wetlands, said Shirley Dettloff, a founding member of the Amigos and former mayor of Huntington Beach.
The Amigos de Bolsa Chica is a nonprofit group that was formed in 1976 as an effort to save the Bolsa Chica wetlands from being developed into a marina.
