Great news! The Marin Audubon Society was selected by the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority to receive a grant of up to $968,916 for the Tiscornia Marsh restoration and sea level rise adaptation project. The Tiscornia Marsh site covers 20 acres of tidal marsh and bay lands located north of East Canal Street. The marsh has experienced considerable erosion along its bayward edge and over the last 30 years. Approximately three acres of the tidal marsh has been lost dramatically impacting habitat for species. The marsh restoration and sea level rise adaptation action will help stop the extensive loss of tidal marsh due to ongoing erosion and will help reduce flood risk for the Canal community.
