Project: Lower Redwood Creek Restoration Phase II

Description: A grant to the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy for a cooperative project with the Golden Gate National Recreation Area of the National Park Service, the Department of Parks and Recreation and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to restore natural estuary function of Lower Redwood Creek just upstream of Muir Beach in Marin County. This project consists primarily of relocating the visitor parking lot out of the floodplain onto adjacent higher ground, and restoring a natural wetland in the footprint of the former parking lot. To provide access to the beach, a second 225 foot span of a new pedestrian bridge/boardwalk will be constructed from the new parking lot over the new wetland.
