WAYSIDE PANEL TITLE: A Tidal-Marsh Extravaganza PANEL DESCRIPTION: The wayside encounters north on the north side of the route. VIEW FROM WAYSIDE: The wayside is on the inland side of the San Francisco Bay Trail, on the south west edge of the tidal-marsh. DESCRIPTION OF ILLUSTRATION # 1: An image of 6 various marsh plants expanding in a sand dune near water. PLANT # 2: Next on the dune are three environment-friendly stalks expanding vertically, with smaller sized stalks stemming from the main one. PLANT # 3: Following the pickleweed is a rendering of arrow grass, which has numerous eco-friendly, upright tendrils that grow halfway up the plant, around a taller center stalk. PLANT # 4: To the right of the arrow lawn is a plant that creeps along the surface area of the dune, Jaumea. With little yellow blossoms and alternating little leaves, Jaumea grows more horizontally than the other examples of dune plants. PLANT # 5: To the right of the Jaumea is a making of salt grass. PLANT # 6: The last photo is of a plant with many oval-shaped eco-friendly leaves at its base, and many forking stalks with blue blooms at their suggestions. Marsh plants grown in park nurseries from seeds gathered in 6 bordering marshes were planted around the Crissy Field marsh. CAPTION: The delicious cells of pickleweed preserve an inner salt level equal to that of the bordering dirt or water. INSTRUCTIONS TO NEXT WAYSIDE: Walk eastern just over one tenth of a mile to get to the next wayside, located on the northern side of the route.
