Project: Breuner Marsh Restoration

Description: The project will restore wetlands and subtidal habitats of San Francisco Bay by removing imported fill, hazardous material and non-native vegetation and replacing with restored native habitats. Approximately 60 acres of previously filled tidal and seasonal wetlands will be restored, created or enhanced. Tidal channels will also be dredged to improve tidal circulation. The remaining 90 acres of ruderal uplands will be converted into coastal prairie and transitional scrub habitats. A 1.5 mile segment of the San Francisco Bay Trail will be constructed through the property, closing a key gap that links Point Pinole with underserved communities in Richmond. A 0.5 spur trail, interpretive exhibits, picnic facility, overlook, restroom and parking area will also be provided. Breuner Marsh is located on the northern shoreline of the City of Richmond.
