Restoration of High Marsh Diversity at Elkhorn Slough - Livestream

Karen Tanner

Elkhorn Slough supports California’s largest remaining salt marsh south of San Francisco Bay, providing critical habitat for birds and other wildlife. Unfortunately, rising seas threaten the marshes of Elkhorn Slough - without intervention, these marshes could drown within the next 50 years. Elkhorn Slough Reserve’s Tidal Wetland Program initiated a large-scale restoration project in 2018 that will make the marsh much more resilient. The establishment of healthy vegetation is critical to success - and because salt marshes are considered stressful habitat, clustering plants together may lead to better restoration outcomes. Join us to find out what we have learned about restoration techniques, and hear how the restored Hester Marsh is faring!
