A First Look Back at the San Francisco Estuary Project

by Scott T. McCreary,
Cornelia Tietke,



Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: The Management of Coastal Lagoons and Enclosed Bays

Abstract: This paper presents an initial retrospective look at the San Francisco Estuary Project (SFEP) from the standpoint of the senior author, who was involved in the project as a consulting environmental analyst, facilitator of land use policies and goals for wetlands monitoring, and in an ongoing role in a project to strengthen watershed-based planning in the estuary region. While much of the paper is descriptive, we offer several observation and pose questions which we believe merit further examination in a full-fledged review of the SFEP.
