Overview

Come join us for an exciting opportunity to visit the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve, restoration site that is part of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project. This site is being restored to natural marsh, mudflat and other managed wetland habitats, in order to improve flood protection and recreation use for community resilience and enjoyment. Restoration of the site will also improve habitat for sensitive species.

Learning objectives include improving participant understanding of:

  • tidal marsh restoration practices at Eden Landing,
  • best practices for tidal marsh restoration,
  • managing sediment through beneficial reuse at restoration sites including creating upland transition zones, and;
  • how tidal wetlands could be affected by sea level rise.

Featured speakers include: John Krause, California Department of Fish and Wildlife; Eric Mruz, Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge; John Bourgeois, State Coastal Conservancy
