On October 25, 2008, 550 acres of dairy pasture were reconnected to the waters of Tomales Bay and Lagunitas Creek, and the restored marsh lands were named the Giacomini Wetlands. Since then the area has flourished with ongoing stewardship efforts to support common and rare species of fish, birds, frogs, and benthic invertebrates.
