Bair Island Habitat Restoration Day: Planting in the Marsh
Join Refuge partners on a habitat restoration day to learn more about Bair Island and lend a hand in its restoration!
We are inviting you to participate in a habitat restoration event at Bair Island! Bair Island in Redwood City is a crucial unit of the Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge. Approximately 3,000 acres were acquired in the 1990s only because of the tenacity of local citizens and grassroots organizations who ensured its protection. Bair's long restoration has been led by Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST) and San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO), and we hope you will join us to continue that legacy!
The event will take place mainly on Inner Bair, starting with an interpretive talk followed by actually getting our hands dirty (just kidding, gloves will be provided)! November is the perfect time for planting, and our partners with USFWS and SFBBO will be showing us how to get it done. Your actions will make a long-term impact on Bair's ecosystem and resiliency!
This program is brought to you by the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society (SFBWS), with vital support from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO), and a Starbucks Neighborhood Grant.
