Earth Day Volunteering: Don Edwards SF Bay National Wildlife Refuge Cleanup

In the heart of California's high-tech industry lies a 30,000-acre oasis for millions of migratory birds and endangered species. The nation's first urban national wildlife refuge sits on the southern end of San Francisco Bay. The refuge, created in 1974, was largely the result of grassroots efforts by the local community to protect the San Francisco Bay ecosystem.

Interested in volunteering at the Refuge? Join in our cleanup and restoration stewardship projects in honor of Earth Day.
