Restoration Work Days
Partners such as Save The Bay, the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory, and Keep Coyote Creek Beautiful host restoration work days throughout the year on Restoration Project areas. You can help Bay wildlife by volunteering a couple hours to help pull weeds, plant native species, or improve nesting areas at 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. Check Meetings & Events to sign up for upcoming work days.
Help Scientific Research
Partner San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO) depends on an extensive crew of volunteers for scientific monitoring and outreach work, such as counting and tagging birds, or introducing the public to birds. Find out how to get involved at SFBBO's volunteer page.
Volunteer with Other Refuge Activities
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge has historically offered multiple opportunities for volunteers, including work in environmental education, maintenance, resource management and at the native plant nursery. This program was on hold during the pandemic, but opportunities are starting to return. You can find out about them through the Refuge's non-profit partner, the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society, on its Volunteer webpage. More opportunities may be at the Refuge's Get Involved page.
