From the second floor of the Channel Islands National Park headquarters, a vivid imagination is needed to envision a new environmental education center on a 2-acre lot at the entrance to Ventura Harbor. The site is cluttered with slabs of busted concrete, jetty supports standing like towering chess pieces, and outhouses. The islands are lost in a curtain of fog. But in her mind's eye, Carol J.

Re "Once Vibrant Beach Colony a Ghost Town," Aug. 30: The LAX/El Segundo sand dunes are not just a "butterfly preserve"; there are 11 endangered species there. (Only one needed to be declared--the El Segundo blue butterfly, since the land was thereby saved.) All told, scientists have documented more than 1,000 species of plants and animals on the site, many of them fascinating and unusual. It will take years for the restoration effort to remove the European weed-grasses that make the dunes appear brown in the summer, but once it's done, the El Segundo sand dunes will be known as they once were--the most beautiful flowering area in all of Los Angeles.

City revenues from a methane gas conversion program at Lopez Canyon Landfill will be split between two projects: the closing of three other landfills and operation of a proposed environmental education center. The methane gas-to-electricity conversion system should be completed late this year or in early 1999, said Steve Fortune, manager of the city's Solid Resources Engineering and Construction Division. The methane gas is generated by landfill decomposition.

A state appeals court Tuesday ordered Pacific Lumber Co. to temporarily stop logging in a North Coast old-growth redwood forest believed to be a habitat of the marbled murrelet, a small sea bird on California's endangered species list. Pacific Lumber, which began logging in the Owl Creek area of Humboldt County on Friday, said it stopped cutting after the stay was issued. But the company denied the birds were being harmed and said it would seek to dissolve the order.
