Civic Center Floating Island Unveiling


On Friday June 3, 2016 at 4 PM please join the Gallinas Watershed Council (GWC) and Marin County Supervisor Damon Connolly for the official unveiling of the Civic Center Lagoon FLOATING ISLANDS.

GWC volunteers will kayak to the islands and remove the temporary fencing around the two Floating Islands to reveal their full glory. The fencing was to keep birds from ruining the islands while the native plants were getting established.

The floating islands are biofilters that were launched in October 2015 during the annual Bioneers Conference. They demonstrate how to clean the water of the lagoon using biomimicry, where nature-based technology works to remove excess nutrients.

We will meet on the Children's Island in the Civic Center lagoon at 4PM. This event will take 30 minutes.
