Baylands Discovery Map
Common Ground, San Pablo Baylands
Sonoma, Napa, and Solano Counties
Resilience cannot be achieved by design and restoration strategies alone – it must be fostered with the help of human connections to this landscape that we hope people will consider part of their home and lives. Common Ground’s community outreach indicated that people want access and improved legibility of the baylands. To this end, the team developed a Baylands Discovery Map to provide information about how to access the baylands. The map also serves as a tool to educate visitors about landscape processes and the cultural history of the San Pablo Baylands.
Map making can be a great resource to reorient people to their own communities and the natural resources near where they live.
