Event DescriptionOn December 10th, Claire Meyler of the California Invasive Plant Council will discuss their work protecting nesting birds in SF Bay marshes from invasive plant species. San Francisco Bay is more than the geographic feature that defines our region. It is a major global biodiversity hotspot. It is the largest estuary on the west coast of North America. It is a critical stopover point along the Pacific Flyway migration route for millions of shorebirds and waterfowl. At a time when the world’s biodiversity is under increasing pressure, we have a golden opportunity to protect the treasure at the heart of the Bay Area. Rimming the Bay, between freeways, airports, and dumps, remain precious wetlands. After more than a century of destruction, restoration projects are poised to reverse the trend.
