Giacomini Wetland Restoration Project: Technical Evaluation of Potential Public Access Alignments
The National Park Service (NPS) evaluated a range of possible restoration alternatives for the proposed wetlands restoration project at the Giacomini Ranch in Marin County, California. The Giacomini Ranch is located in the southern portion of the Tomales Bay watershed. The potential for incorporating public access within the Project Area is an important issue that was raised during the project scoping. During scoping, several potential public access concepts or alignments were proposed either by members of the public, the NPS, or by other local agencies such as the County of Marin. The intent of this study is to inform the public and the NPS on potential resource impacts associated with these alignments, so that fully informed decisions can be made on options for future planning studies.
