The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is happy to publish the third issue of its digital-only newsletter, Tide Rising: Volume 2, Issue 1, Fall 2020. This issue’s theme is Partnerships & Supporters.
In this issue:
- On our second year of Tide Rising, we begin by spotlighting partnerships that make a difference on the Farallon Islands and Salinas River National Wildlife Refuges.
- Read an exciting report on the Summer Camp 2020 delivered virtually.
- Watershed Watchers describes long-term partnerships that have made this program alive and making a difference.
- Both Friends groups columns this year focus on partners that helped them deliver programs to support the Refuge and the Complex.
- The SFBWS staff have created a wonderful story activity about bees for young people.
- People of note this quarter will say goodbye to some, welcome others, and reflect on how indigenous people influenced habitats and wildlife in earlier days.
