Document Description
This is a tidal marsh restoration project to be done through sediment addition in the Elkhorn Slough Ecological Reserve. It includes restoration of 147 acres of tidal salt marsh, ecotone and native grasslands. The site includes 104 acres of former tidal marsh that have subsided approximately 2' and no longer support vegetated marsh, and up to 43 acres of ecotone and ruderal grassland. The approach would use imported and onsite sediments to raise marsh and mudflat elevations and restore tidal marsh habitats in these areas. The elevation of the new marsh would be just over Mean Higher High Water and the ecotone and grassland would be planted with native ecotone and grassland plants.
