About Hamilton/BMK Wetlands Restoration Project - Novato Baylands Stewards

Location:

737 Aberdeen Rd., Novato, CA 94949, US

Mission Statement

The Novato Baylands Stewards is a sustainable, resourceful community partner made up of concerned community members and professionals dedicated to the restoration, improvement and appreciation of baylands along the San Pablo Bay shoreline. We foster community engagement, hands-on training in environmental jobs, and ecological education, with an eye to engaging underserved populations. Currently, the Novato Baylands Stewards focuses our efforts on the Hamilton/Bel Marin Keys Wetland Restoration Project in Novato, CA.

Description

The goal of the Hamilton/Bel Marin Keys Wetlands Restoration Project is to transform over 2,000 acres of land back into the diverse seasonal and tidal wetland that it once was. The site provides habitat for migratory shorebirds, waterfowl, fish, and other wildlife. In addition to wildlife benefits, tidal wetlands help buffer sea level rise and serve as natural sponges, absorbing and slowly releasing storm water. They also help to capture greenhouse gases, improve water quality, and provide open space for people to enjoy. The project site includes 2.7 miles of the SF Bay Trail, wheelchair access, viewing areas, and a native plant nursery where plants are grown with the help of our mighty volunteers.
