Suisun Marsh: Resilience Hotspot

Updated: Oct 18

Suisun Marsh is the biggest brackish water marsh west of the Mississippi. What's the plan to protect it, and the communities that border it, from sea level rise? We talk to Sadie Wilson of the Greenbelt Alliance about why Suisun is one of their five Resilience Hotspots. Then we move in and get a local perspective from Alex Lunine of Sustainable Solano.
