Wetlands

MBC biologists are actively involved in the design and implementation of wetland evaluations and in salt marsh and eelgrass habitat restoration and transplant programs. These programs have involved extensive planning, field, and laboratory work, as well as analyses. The restoration requirements, procedures, results and recommendations, and the impacts of restoration upon resident biota have been detailed in cooperation with National Marine Fisheries Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, California Department of Fish and Game, and the California Coastal Commission. MBC has restored over one million square feet of eelgrass with over 120,000 eelgrass bundles.
