Celebrate World Wetlands Day with us by learning about the largest wetland restoration project on the West Coast!

Interested in learning about the wetland restoration project happening here in the South Bay? Join the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project and San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society for an engaging and educational program featuring our Executive Project Manager, Dave Halsing.

Upon completion, the Restoration Project will restore thousands of acres of lost tidal marsh as well as enhanced managed pond habitat, on lands owned and managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's Eden Landing Ecological Reserve. Tidal marsh habitat is not only critical for local and migratory wildlife, but for our communities as well. Historical implications and the impacts of climate change pose various threats to our South Bay communities and restoring tidal marsh habitats will help us move towards a more sustainable and resilient future.

This program is a partnership of the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society. The purpose of this program is to prevent urban runoff pollution and increase the surrounding communities’ knowledge of such pollution, and how to reduce its harmful effects through personal behavior.
