Want to learn more about the large-scale restoration projects taking place around the San Francisco Bay? Interested in how the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge and its partners undertake daily restoration activities? Looking to improve your outdoor spaces and make them more watershed-friendly and drought-resistant?

I n this new program developed by San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society and San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO), you will learn about the various projects taking place on Refuge land, how you can get involved, and how our partners are doing the work to create more resilient ecosystems for a more sustainable future!

We will spend time in the Refuge Environmental Education Center's Butterfly Garden, maybe get our hands dirty pulling some weeds (just kidding, gloves will be provided), and check out the work that SFBBO is doing in the on-site plant nursery.

This program will also take a closer look at the construction of the levee onsite through the South San Francisco Bay Shoreline Project (read more here).

Spots are limited, so sign up soon if the event interests you.

Register here.

Other Considerations:

  • Program participants will walk approximately a half-mile as we explore the Butterfly Garden and the Nursery.
  • The weather will likely be warm and sunny, so participants are encouraged to wear sun protection like sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses and bring plenty of water and snacks and bring layers in case it gets a bit windy.
  • ADA-compliant parking spaces, trails, and restrooms are available on site.
  • Restrooms will be available in the form of an ADA-compliant portable toilet and hand-washing station.
  • Please follow safety precautions and abide by CDC guidelines.
