Restore Hayward Marsh Project


The Restore Hayward Marsh Project is in the design and permitting phase. The Project will implement the HASPA Shoreline Adaptation Master Plan by protecting and restoring Hayward Marsh’s existing biodiversity, preserve and enhance public access features, design the marsh to be resilient to climate change, and improve nesting bird islands. Project improvements will include widening of the Bay-side levee which currently supports the San Francisco Bay Trail to protect the trail from erosion and flooding and enhance the trail’s longevity; the Marsh’s existing central levee will be raised to protect tidal marsh habitat, salt pannes, and new nesting bird islands from sea level rise; and new upland habitat will be created behind this raised levee to allow the marsh to migrate as sea level increases.
