Mission Statement

To transform 750 acres of the former Hamilton Army Airfield in the city of Novato to a diverse array of wetland and wildlife habitats.

Description

The Hamilton/Bel Marin Keys Wetlands Restoration Project is a joint effort between California Coastal Conservancy and the Army Corps of Engineers - SF District to restore 750 acres of the former Hamilton Army Airfield into diverse seasonal and tidal wetland as well as wildlife habitats for many native species. The site provides habitat for migratory shorebirds, waterfowl, fish, and other wildlife. In addition to wildlife benefits, tidal wetlands 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 two wetland areas, a wildlife corridor, as well as a native plant nursery where all restoration stock is grown with the help of our mighty volunteers.
