Salt marsh restoration experience in San Francisco Bay

Williams, P. and P. Faber

Publication Date:

Efforts to restore ecologic functions in ten major tidal wetland restoration projects implemented in the San Francisco Bay over the last 25 years have had variable results. Although almost all restoration projects constructed do now support important wetland functions, in a number of cases they have performed or evolved in ways that were unanticipated at the time they were planned. This extensive restoration experience has provided important lessons for restoration planning and design that can be applied in other estuaries.
