This November virtual public meeting of the Stakeholder Forum provided an opportunity for members of the Forum and the public to learn and dialogue about Project progress, science, funding, and other restoration-related topics.
This represents the past archive of any past meetings that might convene stakeholders, policy makers, researchers, or the general public on matters related to the South Bay Salt Ponds restoration. If you would like to see the current meetings, view our main Meetings & Events page.
Here you can access records from Stakeholder Forum and early Project planning meetings, from 2003 to 2017. The Stakeholder Forum is the principal public advisory body to the Restoration Project.
June 21, 2012 Meeting
Meeting purpose: Present Shoreline Study partners’ tentatively selected plan for Alviso-area flood risk management (including levee alignments), ecosystem restoration and public trails, and gather input.

This Working Group is being convened as a subcommittee of the Lower Alameda Creek Stewardship Committee, an ongoing group that advises the Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District.
Phase 1 of the SBSP project in the Ravenswood ponds focuses on opening up some salt ponds to the bay, and on possible expansion to and improvement of public access. Simultaneously, the Shoreline Study is will be developing and examining the feasibility of developing detailed plans for ecosystem restoration and the long-term flood protection levees, and other flood protection improvements.

Special Public Meetings and Public Workshops
Learn about the science that undergirds the Restoration Project at our 2-day Symposium, featuring up-to-date presentations and discussion on tidal marsh and pond restoration, waterbirds, sediment, exciting collaborations and more.
The National Science Panel spearheaded the concept of a design charette to lay out a long-term vision that can guide the project over several decades, and bring existing experience to bear on both the identification of important research issues and opportunities for early restoration successes.
Outstanding Environmental Project Award!
Project managers are proud to have received the Friends of the Estuary Outstanding Environmental Project award at this year’s conference for our Phase 1 habitat and recreation work. The ten years of work improved 3,750 acres of habitat and created 7 miles of new trails, among other recreation improvements. As a result, endangered species and native fish… Read More

This seminar was targeted toward researchers and scientists working in the south San Francisco Bay to better understand NOAA CO-OPS vertical datums information. Marti Ikehara, the CA State Geodetic Advisor for NOAA/NOS/NGS presented the seminar. The seminar was 2 hours and interactive with questions and answers. The purpose of the seminar was for researchers and scientists to have a clear… Read More
The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project’s Biennial Science Symposium was held on Thursday, October 22, 2015 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA.
This South Bay Salt Pond Restoration (SBSPR) Project annual meeting seeks to bring all researchers up to date on latest studies/results, foster collaboration among researchers, seek ideas for funding for science/applied studies, and foster direct dialogue between researchers and managers on proposed management actions.
