Baylands Map Historical

Past: This map shows the historical extent of tidal marsh around San Francisco Bay, circa 1850 before most modern development.

Baylands Map Present and Future

Present and Future: This map shows the current extent of tidal marsh that has persisted around the Bay for 100 years or more (light green), restored baylands (green), and restoration projects that are either on their way to forming tidal marsh, or that enhance non-tidal habitats (darkest green).

For questions about these maps please contact Micha Salomon.

  1. From San Francisco Estuary Institute (SFEI), 1998. Bay Area EcoAtlas V1.50b4 1998: Geographic Information System of Wetland Habitats Past and Present (www.sfei.org/content/ecoatlas-version-150b4-1998).
  2. Note that acreages are counted at different stages of a project, so some acres are counted multiple times to represent each distinct action that has taken place. For example, a property that was acquired and later restored would be counted once as a “Protection” project and again as a “Restoration” project.
  3. These acreages represent wetland projects tracked by the San Francisco Bay Joint Venture (www.SFBAYJV.org). These are the types of projects likely to be eligible for Restoration Authority (RA) funds and do not include habitat types that would not qualify.
