The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society seeks to nurture in the public a sense of understanding, appreciation, and stewardship of the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuges, their natural and cultural history, and to conserve, preserve, and restore bay lands as essential wildlife habitat.
San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society was founded in 1987 as a not-for-profit Friends Group supporting the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Complex, one of the first and largest Refuges to preserve and protect wildlife in an urban area, and among more than 500 refuges managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service. We help to organize the communities of the Bay area, to coordinate volunteer support and educate the public about the importance of caring for our local habitat and ecosystems; addressing issues from clean water and pollution prevention to recreational opportunities that nurture an appreciation for nature and stewardship for the wildlife that share our world. Through our programs thousands of school children have grown up to understand nature through hands-on science. We have assisted with many projects, such as building trails and a native plant nursery, planning for and restoring habitat, supporting and celebrating volunteer efforts, special events, and much more. We would like you to join us to continue to expand our rich and diverse organization's future goals, and especially to help others learn to support our mission.
