On June 7, SFEI, in partnership with the Santa Clara Valley Water District and South Bay Salt Ponds Restoration Project, hosted a landscape “visioning” workshop in San Jose. The goal of the workshop was to develop a resilient, multi-benefit vision highlighting opportunities for connecting Calabazas and San Tomas Aquino Creeks to South Bay Salt Pond A8, which could support both tidal marsh restoration and flood management. Vision development was led by a panel of regional science experts and based on an understanding of short- and long-term habitat goals and management priorities for the area. This workshop was part of a new EPA funded project called Healthy Watershed Resilient Baylands, whose primary goal is to develop information for supporting multi-benefit urban greening and tidal wetland restoration projects in Silicon Valley.
