The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project's work has benefited from the many government agencies, foundations and private organizations that have supported our first decade of restoring salt marsh and habitats for shorebirds, fish and other wildlife.

Your financial contributions can help to ensure that the work of restoring wetlands for wildlife and building trails for the public continues during tough fiscal times. And it will help us pay for science and monitoring, to ensure we are making sound and effective decisions.

The Project has teamed with the California Wildlife Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, to accept donations from those interested in helping out. Donations will be placed in a designated fund to support projects that advance wetlands restoration and improve public access.

The fund will have the flexibility to respond to urgent needs as they arise. All money will be dedicated specifically to support our core activities.
