San Francisquito Creek Baylands Landscape Change Analysis
Jul 19, 2016
SFEI recently completed a landscape change analysis of lower San Francisquito Creek in the South Bay. The study was conducted as part of the larger Flood Control 2.0 project to increase regional flood protection will improving ecological diversity. This particular project illustrated the change in creek and bayland habitat conditions over the past 150 years. The historical landscape was reconstructed using a variety of maps, photographs, and documents compiled from many local archival sources. The results from the study can be used to help develop long-term, multi-benefit restoration actions for lower San Francisquito Creek and the adjacent lands.
