A couple walking at Crissy Field, San Francisco.

From a waste dump to a thriving coastal habitat, Crissy Field has gone through an amazing transformation. This former military land is now a dynamic public open space that recreates the multi-layered natural and cultural history of the site. From 1998 through 2000, the restoration of this 100 acre site included the re-creation of an 18 acre tidal marsh linked to the San Francisco Bay, and the re-creation of 16 acres of dune habitat, together supporting 105 different species of shrubs, wildflowers, and marsh plants. More than 230,000 cubic yard of dirt, sand and mud were excavated and a channel was opened to the tides in November 1999, allowing fresh and salt water to merge at Crissy Field for the first time in 100 years.
