SF Bay Shoreline Advocates Meeting: Monday, April 3

Shoreline Advocates returns this spring with a fascinating meeting in Novato, focused on positive action in the face of climate change.
SF Bay Shoreline Advocates Meeting
New Time: Monday, April 3 -- 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Optional tour of Hamilton Wetlands at 12:00 PM
The Marin Community Foundation
5 Hamilton Landing, Suite 200
Novato, CA 94949
Details about the meeting location will be sent to those who RSVP.

Besides our usual quick round-table of updates, you'll hear from:
  • Roger Leventhal, lead environmental engineer for several major Bay and Delta wetland-restoration projects.
  • Barbara Salzman, President and longtime project manager with Marin Audubon Society and pioneer of wetland restoration in the area.
  • Ralph Boniello, Alameda Creek Alliance, with briefs on how environmental groups can take part in the upcoming March for Science, as well as a collection of ideas for outreach to kids -- timely for spring tabling!
  • Christina McWhorter, Hamilton Wetlands Native Plant Nursery Manager, will speak on the 2,600-acre Hamilton/Bel Marin Keys restoration project, where dredge spoil was used to "refill" the diked and sunken Hamilton airfield, re-opened to the tides in 2014.
Coffee and snacks 8:45 AM, meeting 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM (please bring a sack lunch).

Following the meeting there will be a brief optional tour of the Hamilton Wetlands.
