San Franciso Bay's First Osprey Camera!
How You Can Help Opsreys
Restore Shoreline Habitat
Nesting Ospreys need our San Francisco Bay ecosystem and the surrounding watershed to be as clean, healthy, and safe as possible. This means we should all keep the shoreline free of dangerous and toxic debris. We also must ensure that S.F. Bay wetlands have the right mix of plants to support our vast array of native wildlife, including the native fish populations that Ospreys rely upon for sustenance.
To promote stewardship of S.F. Bay for wildlife, Golden Gate Audubon leads habitat restoration activities at numerous sites around the Bay. We do shoreline cleanups, remove non-native vegetation, re-plant with native species that support local wildlife, and improve our shoreline areas for birds and also for people to explore and learn about the amazing nature of our region.
Several times each month, Golden Gate Audubon hosts public restoration volunteer events. You and your family/friends are invited to participate! At these public restoration events, there’s always a break from the hands-on labor to let you see and learn about the wildlife your efforts are benefitting. Our upcoming events are listed here: http://goldengateaudubon.org/volunteer
Private Group Restoration Events
If you have a group of more than 10 people, we may be able to arrange a special restoration activity for your group. Corporate teams, scout troops, and other civic organizations are welcome to contact us to arrange for a private restoration event on public land to help your group connect with nature in a meaningful way.
Donations from the group or from each participant are very much appreciated, as your restoration event will be coordinated and led by professionals.
All the habitat work we do is on public lands; we don’t own any of the properties we’re enhancing.
