Sunday, December 1, 2013: Hamilton Wetlands STRAW Restoration Tour. Join Point Blue educators to learn how this exciting, multi-faceted project is enriching ecosystems and the local community. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the California Coastal Conservancy are leading an effort to restore nearly 2,600 acres of wetland habitat on northern San Francisco Bay and have invited Point Blue's Students and Teachers Restoring A Watershed (STRAW) Program as a partner with a special role to help involve the local community while implementing part of the restoration.
The Hamilton Wetlands Restoration is the largest wetland restoration project in the United States to beneficially reuse dredged sediment, it helps meet a regional goal of more than doubling the amount of tidal marsh in San Francisco Bay, and will foster ecosystem resiliency to effects of climate change.
This walk is open to Novato community members.
Sign up required by Tuesday 11/26/13
