This is our final year enhancing Aramburu Island Sanctuary. Come lend a hand in wildlife habitat restoration this fall and winter!

About

The project site is located in Richardson Bay, a short boat ride or kayak paddle from our center in Tiburon. The 17-acre island, Aramburu, was created in the early 1960s by dredge spoils and fill from nearby development. Visiting Aramburu Island Sanctuary offers volunteers a great opportunity to view resting and foraging waterbirds. The main task of each volunteer event is to restore the island due to wintering waterbirds using it as a resting spot. We will be planting native species and pulling invasive ones, and requires some bending over. The work is moderately strenuous. We encourage our volunteers to bring good shoes, clothes they don’t mind getting dirty in and a water bottle. For quickest response email Erin ebarry@audubon.org to RSVP or if you have any questions. We hope to see you at one of our events.
