Come to Eden Landing to stomp mud, all to help a threatened little bird!

Join the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory at a new restoration site at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Union City. 

To help improve the breeding success of this threatened species, SFBBO staff and volunteers will stomp in the mud to provide nest “scrapes” for snowy plovers to lay their eggs in. In addition, participants may remove predator perches and spread oyster shells to increase pond texture and habitat complexity, which helps the birds blend in and evade predators.

This event is open to all ages, but please note that there are no restroom facilities at the site. Volunteers will have to drive on a graded dirt road for a short distance. Due to access restrictions, all volunteers will need to stay for the duration of the event.

Please register here. Additional information will be provided in the confirmation email. 

Please bring appropriate clothing that can get dirty (mud boots, layers, sun protection). In accordance with SFBBO's COVID-19 health protocols, all participants will also be required to fill out a health self-assessment form within 24 hours before the event.
