A Boat-side View of Restoring South Bay Tidal Marshes

It’s time for another guest post! We are lucky to get a boater’s-eye view of our restoring tidal marshes from Jim Ervin, who writes a monthly nature blog for UC Davis, a summary of eyewitness observations from the boat used by UC Davis fish scientists as they cruise up and down the Coyote Creek and around Alviso marshes and sloughs trawling to monitor fish. Jim takes the photos and develops maps to track the outcomes of the university’s fish monitoring crew.
