These marsh restoration projects are part of a regional initiative that has quietly grown into the largest coastal wetland restoration program in the United States. The purpose of the program is to Approaches for tidal-marsh restoration in San Francisco Bay and Delta continue to evolve, with a focus on promoting the natural development of restored marshes. Allowing for natural marsh development enhances the physical and biological heterogeneity of restored marshes, including tidal-channel formation. The scope of restoration efforts within the bay and delta has increased substantially
