Restoring a Wetland

This walk is for ages 18 and up. Located on the edge of San Pablo Bay, McInnis Park is bordered by some of the county's most productive marshland. Marin County Parks is looking at solutions to restore tidal wetlands to this area, which will benefit several protected animal species as well as help mitigate some effects of sea level rise. Join us for a bird’s eye view of the restoration opportunities along the lower sections of Las Gallinas and Miller Creeks and then a walk along the levees where we’ll get a closer look at the project area and discuss the life histories of the animals who will benefit the most. We’ll be joined by Marin County Parks staff, James Raives and Sarah Richards, who are heading up this effort and will discuss the vision for the McInnis Marsh Restoration Project.

Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them. We request that no pets (except service animals) attend.
Rain may cancel. If questionable weather, call (415) 893-9527 after 8am on the morning of the event to hear a recorded message if cancelled. In the event of cancellation, program will be rescheduled for May.
