More information about Dutch Slough Tidal Marsh Restoration:

Freshwater tidal marshland, a particular type of wetland found along rivers near the ocean, once wove through hundreds of thousands of acres across the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, which is the largest delta on the west coast of the Americas.

These marshes are not only teeming with diverse wildlife, but they filter runoff and pollutants from water, prevent erosion, build soil to buffer sea-level rise, sequester carbon, protect nearby towns from flood damage, and provide nursery habitat for juvenile salmon. Not to mention, they provide breathtaking vistas and recreational opportunities for people to connect with nature.

Today, very little estuary marsh habitat remains—only about 2%, at the most. It’s critical we actively re-establish the rich ecological network of these essential wetlands, and fast. Many native species who depend on tidal marshes are on the brink of extinction, such as salmon and Delta smelt.

River Partners is proud to have partnered with the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) for years on major efforts to revitalize the Delta. The Dutch Slough Tidal Marsh Restoration aims to serve declining native wildlife species, provide a living laboratory to further scientific understanding of ecological restoration in the Delta, and provide public shoreline access, education, and recreational opportunities.
