Hamilton Wetlands Restored!
On Friday, April 25, 2014, the Coastal Conservancy and Corps of Engineers took the final step in the restoration of Hamilton Airfield to tidal marsh habitat, breaching the levee that has separated Hamilton from the Bay for over a century. Bay waters flowed in and the crowd cheered! Hamilton is a 648-acre wetland restoration project in Novato along the Marin shoreline. Formerly an Army Airfield, the site was cleaned up and then filled with 5.6 million cubic yards of dredged material, mostly from the Port of Oakland, to raise the elevation and speed conversion to tidal marsh habitat. A 2.7 mile section of Bay Trail was completed as part of the project, so please come visit the project and enjoy the wetlands and wildlife that are now flourishing.
