This weeks Birdnote: Salt Pond Restoration in San Francisco Bay
Thousands of acres of south San Francisco Bay that lay under industrial salt ponds for over a century are now being restored to native tidal marsh. The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project has acquired almost 24 square miles that salt producers had diked along the bay’s tidal margin. The ongoing restoration must balance varied needs for habitat. Some ponds are still managed for high salinity to attract nesting Western Snowy Plovers. Other areas are restored to marshes with normal salinity. When completed, the South Bay will be home to the largest tidal wetland restoration on the West Coast.
