The California State Coastal Conservancy has allotted $2.2 million to a North Bay research group to take over caretaking responsibilities and volunteer work for one of Marin County's largest wetland restoration sites. The Point Blue Conservation Science nonprofit research group received the funds to continue the upkeep of nearly 200 acres of the Hamilton wetlands and forthcoming Bel Marin Keys wetlands near Novato for the next two years. Its responsibilities include maintenance, replacing aged or damaged interpretive signs and kiosks, running the native plant nursery, planting, watering, coordinating volunteer groups and leading school field trips.
