  Natural History of the Bolinas Lagoon
The lagoon is a nursery for tiny fish, many of which are important to commercial fishing industries, and which feed nestling herons and egrets in the nearby colony at Audubon Canyon Ranch.
While Bolinas Lagoon is a sanctuary for the many species which spend most or all of their lives there, it makes its mark on a global scale as a crucial link in the chain of wetlands used by millions of waterbirds which migrate along the Pacific Coast Flyway.
As more sediments settle in the lagoon, the volume of water that enters from the sea decreases, the effects of scouring are decreased, and the pace of sedimentation accelerates.

A lagoon is a body of comparatively shallow salt water separated from the deeper sea by a shallow or exposed sandbank, coral reef, or similar feature.
