Description

See also: Tidal Wetlands, Habitat RestorationThis workshop was Co-Sponsored by the San Francisco Bay and Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserves. Intended Audience: City and county municipality land-use planners, environmental consultants, land managers, and anyone whose job entailed protecting tidal wetlands. Workshop Goal: To introduce decision makers to the ecology of natural, managed, and restored tidal wetlands on California's central coast and San Francisco Bay and how those wetlands are protected by regulatory agencies. This workshop sought to answers the following questions: • How do I recognize the various types of tidal wetlands? • What is the current and historical distribution of tidal wetlands in central California and the San Francisco Bay? • What birds and fish use tidal wetlands? • How are tidal wetlands regulated and why? This was a beginner’s level workshop for those wanting an introduction to tidal wetlands.
