Audubon California and staff at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary are partnering with a grassroots organization (Shore Up Marin City), to restore a degraded wetland site in a disadvantaged community on the front lines of the impacts of climate change. By restoring this urban wetland in Marin City - an unincorporated, mostly minority community of Marin County – we will not only provide climate refugia for migrating birds across a diverse suite of habitats (subtidal, intertidal, upland), we will also reduce the impacts from sea level rise-mediated flood events, which already shut down a critical section of Highway 101 and cuts off Marin City’s access/egress for fire and emergency personnel. The restored site will provide habitat for birds, reduce flooding, and provide access to nature in a park-poor community.
