Florence LaRiviere, 89, walks with refuge manager Eric Mruz along the marsh named after her and her late husband at the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, in Fremont, Calif.
LaRiviere is a longtime wetlands activist, and is delighted with the 50-year recovery plan for San Francisco Bay and other coastal wetlands released Thursday by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and its partners. The recovery plan is the biggest effort to save tidal marshes outside the Florida Everglades. Photo: Eric Risberg, AP
