Looking deeper and making tweaks are themes in the newest issue of Estuary as managers and scientists scrutinize their options and check their restoration work in light of a drier, hotter, more hungry future. Here's how to get the Estuary News delivered to your inbox for free.

The June issue explores how bay fish aren’t getting any cleaner despite chemical bans; how Delta fish are still hungry but food may lurk in the shipping channel; and the mechanics of delivering more mud to marshes who need to adapt to sea level rise.

Other adaptations to changing conditions covered in this June’s stories include moving the Bay Trail inland, building taller ballparks (for stormwater retention), thinking like a beaver, and clearing the deadwood in watersheds.

The San Francisco Estuary Partnership — which supports the magazine — is an ABAG program staffed by MTC working to increase the health and resiliency of the San Francisco Estuary. For more information about the Estuary Partnership visit: sfestuary.org.
