The San Francisco Estuary Invasive Spartina Project
The Invasive Spartina Project is a coordinated regional effort among local, state, and federal organizations dedicated to preserving California's extraordinary coastal biological resources through the elimination of introduced species of Spartina (cordgrass). Non-native cordgrasses are highly aggressive invaders that significantly alter both the physical structure and biological composition of our tidal marshes, mudflats, and creeks.
As part of its regional program, the ISP conducts annual bay-wide, and outer coast monitoring, to track and map the extent and rate of spread of nonnative Spartina, and to monitor the efficacy of the ISP’s Spartina treatment.
