The San Francisco Chronicle features SFEI and Senior Scientist Letitia Grenier in their latest editorial advocating for renewed attention on SF Bay restoration. The editorial staff argues that the Baylands Goals provides a solid roadmap to guide restoration of the Bay's habitats and critical processes.

In the article, Dr. Grenier states, "We need to pursue 'green solutions, not gray solutions' - that is, work with nature, said Letitia Grenier, a San Francisco Estuary Institute scientist who led the update of the 1999 Baylands Goals. Green solutions mean breaching a dike to inundate farmland or salt ponds. Or restoring natural river channels and expanding tidal wetlands to prevent flooding and aid in cleaning polluted waters."

The editorial is merely the latest in a series of prominent media events that demonstrate the growing attention on a reinvigorated movement to restore San Francisco Bay. We invite you to visit the Baylands Goals project page or the primary site for further information on this important and ground-breaking publication.
