Investigations of Restoration Techniques That Limit Invasion of Tidal Wetlands

In 2017, UC Davis received $107,655 from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy’s Proposition 1 Grant Program to investigate restoration techniques to limit invasion of tidal wetlands. The project identifies improved methods for tidal wetland revegetation that reduce invasion by nonnative plants at Dutch Slough. The DIISC Team identified this project as a research priority in 2015 and participated in the grant proposal development.
