Project: San Francisco Estuary Invasive Spartina Project, Phase 3

Description: Regionally coordinated effort to control/eradicate invasive non-native Spartina densiflora in the San Francisco Estuary, and enhance native Spartina habitats through revegetation and integrate into climate adaptation approaches including high tide refugia features and living shorelines. This phase of the project involves continued eradication of invasive, non-native Spartina, revegetation of treated sites with native wetland plant species and the construction of high-tide habitat islands to provide native tidal wetlands. The SCC's Prop 1 funds are being used to provide upfront funding for a Prop 1 grant to the SCC from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (Grant No. Q1996001) in the amount of $2,151,548.00. Other funds for the project are being provided by the Santa Clara Valley Water District and the United State Fish and Wildlife Service.
