The price for restoring thousands of acres of wetlands around San Francisco Bay runs into many millions of dollars.

But the costs of not doing that work could be even greater. 

Placing the proposed parcel tax on the ballot in June, not November, is a decision based on careful political consideration, explains Sam Schuchat, Executive Officer of the California Coastal Conservancy.

With a secure source for major funding, the trend toward larger wetland restoration projects could be continued and expanded, suggests Letitia Grenier, from the San Francisco Estuary Institute.
