1. Who Needs This Habitat The Most? Marker One
Inscription.  Marker One:
Balancing the needs of people and wildlife has long challenged Californians. Gold Rush-era settlers believed the best value of Baylands came from converting them to salt ponds, housing, or other human uses. Today we recognize the immense value this habitat provides to wildlife, and to us.

Marker Two:
Wildlife Thrives With Multiple Habitats
Threatened and endangered species, along with many other native plants and wildlife, benefit from Eden Landing’s mosaic of interconnected tidal wetland habitat. Each species uses the different types of habitat in different ways. Some live in one habitat fulltime. Others move between habitats for feeding, resting, raising young, and at different times in their lifecycles.
