The Golden Gate Audubon Society engages people to experience the wonder of birds, and translate that wonder into action; and protect native bird populations and their habitats
Founded in 1917, Golden Gate Audubon is one of the oldest wildlife conservation organizations on the West Coast. We have a long history of inspiring and connecting people in the Bay Area with local birds, wildlife and their habitats and today play a critical role in Bay Area wildlife conservation. Golden Gate Audubon has roughly 10,000 members and supporters in San Francisco, Alameda and Contra Costa counties.
I really enjoyed spending the morning picking up trash to help the little snowy plovers habitat. It was a beautiful day, with a great view of the Golden Gate Bridge. I would recommend this activity for anyone. It is a flat section of beach but it is rocky in places. The organizers were ready to go and were very welcoming. Gloves and trash grabbers were provided. If you get a chance, spend the day helping the wee snowy plovers!
