Construction is ramping up on two major projects to restore wetlands around San Francisco Bay.

There are extraordinary restoration projects being designed all around SF Bay. One of them is in the North Bay and is called "the Lower Novato Creek Redesign Project".

This program looks at the thinking behind the design of this project.

Hamilton Wetlands Levee Breach

The Hamilton Wetland Restoration project arrived at a milestone on April 25, 2014.

It was an amazing day and I wanted to share some of the images from that day with you.
