Site: Mayberry Wetland

The Mayberry Wetland site is a 300-acre restored wetland on Sherman Island, north of Mayberry Slough, that is on the property of Mayberry Farms and managed by the California Department of Water Resources and Ducks Unlimited. During Summer 2010, the site was restored from a pepperweed and annual grassland pasture to a wetland through a project managed by Bryan Brock (bpbrock@water.ca.gov). A flux tower equipped to analyze energy, H2O, CO2, and CH4 fluxes was installed on October 14, 2010. At the time of installation, flooding of the site had only recently begun after extensive reconstruction of the wetland bathymetry conducted during the summer. The site is a patchwork of deep and shallow open water. Few tules and cattails remained upon initial wetland construction but quickly colonized the shallow areas. Vegetation patches have since steadily expanded. As of summer 2013 the site is approximately 50/50 open water vs. vegetation.
