Document Description
Save the Bay will design, propagate, transplant, and monitor a project plant approx. 10 acres of upland transition zones with native vegetation in the Ravenswood Ponds as part of the Phase 2 implementation of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project. The project will create cover and forging areas for marsh and other species. This project is consistent with the project described in the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project, FEIS/R, Phase 2, April 2016 and the addition of plants to habitat transition zones after they have been constructed is environmentally beneficial and does not create any new significant environmental effects.
