San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

San Francisco Bay Fund Inventory of Projects

Martin Luther King, Jr. Wetland Restoration Analysis Project

Organization: Golden Gate Audubon Society
2005 Grant Recipient - Alameda County

Purpose

Golden Gate Audubon monitored hydrology, geomorphology, ecology, and bird use of restored tidal and seasonal wetlands at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Shoreline Park. Wetlands and Water Resources Inc. conducted the wetland monitoring and Golden Gate Audubon volunteers performed the bird monitoring.

2012 Update

The San Francisco Foundation Bay Fund grant resulted in important bird-use monitoring data that can inform design of other restoration projects. The grant also enabled us to share “lessons learned” from this model restoration project with the broader restoration community. The “Year 8” monitoring report also revealed a substantial expansion in percent cover of invasive cordgrass on the site.
