In the final stretch of the Malibu Lagoon Restoration Project, contractors spread seeds of native plants.
Suzanne Goode, senior environmental scientist for California State Parks, said the hydroseed mix consists of native seeds, vegetable dye and a biodegradable fiber called tackifier.
"The tackifier helps stick the seeds to the soil," Goode said.
She said the mix is free of all fertilizers.
"We do not use fertilizers with native restorations," Goode said.
The project, which began in June, is set to wrap up by March 15. Only the installation of a shade structure is left to be installed, according to Craig Sap, California State Parks Superintendent of the Angeles District.
