Elkhorn Slough Restoration Lecture | In-Person (Gentrain, MPC Campus)

Course Description:

Over the past 150 years, human actions have altered the tidal, freshwater and sediment processes that are essential to support and sustain Elkhorn Slough. A 122-acre marsh restoration project is currently underway, the first large-scale restoration of its type in this estuary. Restoring this degraded habitat took many hands, from planning to planting, and highlights the importance of a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach to restoring sustainable habitat for the future.
