NBS currently stewards the Hamilton/Bel Marin Keys Wetlands Restoration site, which is beautiful and vast! The 2,500 acres were pristine wetlands until the 1850s. The Hamilton portion (700 acres) has been reconstructed with the beneficial reuse of dredge material and a design appropriate for sea level rise. The BMK portion (1800 acres) entered the first phase of restoration in 2019.

The land

At our facilities, you can delight in thousands of native seedlings growing in the nursery or see meadows of native grasses growing in in-ground propagation beds. You can enjoy local community art from “ArtWorking with our Wetlands”, and learn about the history and significance of the restoration project through interactive posters.
