San Francisco Bay would not exist as the beautiful natural treasure it is today without Save The Bay. This year, we celebrate 50 years of halting massive bay fill and dumping, restoring wetlands and engaging the community to save the Bay.
We’ll be howling at the wetlands this Saturday as we prepare the site for its next batch of native plants by removing invasive species. This beautiful marsh is home to several endangered species, including the California clapper rail and the salt marsh harvest mouse. Luckily, no werewolves have been sighted yet! We will be working to improve wetland habitat at Bothin Marsh in Richardson Bay, Mill Valley. With the help of our partners, the Marin County Open Space District, we will be removing non-native species to improve transition zone habitat for shorebirds and wildlife. You too can help out with our hands-on stewardship projects while you learn about our past and current efforts to improve plant species diversity. Tee shirts will be provided so please list your shirt size in the comments when you register.
