Tide Rising: Volume 2, Issue 3, Spring 2021.

The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is happy to publish the latest issue of its digital newsletter, Tide Rising: Volume 2, Issue 3, Spring 2021. This issue’s theme is Endangered & Threatened Species.

In this issue:

  • Learn what our Friends group can do to advocate for the endangered and threatened species on our Refuge Complex. Find ideas and read an interview with the President of CORFA (Coalition of Refuge Friends & Advocates).
  • See how the Veterans Affairs (VA) Alameda Point staff and volunteers pivoted during the pandemic supporting the least tern, an endangered species on our Refuge. Not quite business as usual.
  • Discover whether a new species has been found on the Antioch Dunes NWR? Learn more about the evening primrose, Clade X.
  • Volunteers in FY2020: they are the lifeblood of the Refuge Complex. Last year and a pandemic didn’t stop our USFWS volunteers.
  • Take a look at the photographs galore this issue!
