Surrounded by the bustling planned community of Irvine, there lies a 300-acre oasis of coastal freshwater wetlands, duck ponds, tall grasses and thousands of recently planted trees. Formerly farmland and later a duck-hunting site, the once degraded marshland has been transformed into the San Joaquin Wildlife Sanctuary, a viable habitat for the imperiled California least tern, least Bell's vireo, light-footed clapper rail and more than 200 other bird species.
