Creekside Restoration

A multi-year project restores shoreline habitat in Hal Brown Park at Creekside.


Community Support

Invasive Harding grass had come to dominate the upland habitat between Creekside Marsh and the scenic overlook at Hal Brown Park. For ten years, Parks staff and volunteers have worked to remove the non-native plants and re-introduce native vegetation to the area, providing habitat for endangered species like the Ridgeway's rail.

The project also included a culvert replacement installed in coordination with Marin County Department of Public Works, to improve tide flows and control flooding.

Small groups of regular volunteers have continued to support this project during the COVID-19 shelter-in-place, following public health guidelines.
