Join Greenbelt Alliance for a summer nature walk in the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay Wildlife Refuge!
Created in 1972, the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is comprised of many separate parcels of bay and marshlands on both sides of San Francisco Bay. The wildlife refuge provides critical habitat for many species of plants and birds. Our walk is in the area just south of the Dumbarton Bridge.
Millions of birds fly through the refuge during peak migration in the fall and winter. We will follow the Tidelands Trail and the Newark Slough Trail for an easy loop of approximately 2 miles to view the fauna and flora, including birds that have decided to hang around for summer.
This is an easy walk of about two miles with minimal elevation change. We will meet in front of the Refuge Visitor Center. There are restrooms nearby.
Wear comfortable walking shoes and a sunhat, and bring binoculars, water, snacks, and walking poles if needed. Bring your lunch if you would like to eat at the refuge after the walk. If you have questions about this outing, please email Ken Lavin at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (415) 543-6771 x321.
