Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary is ground zero for waterbirds and Pacific herring in San Francisco Bay. Our 900-acre open water sanctuary is closed from October 1st to March 31st each year and is visited by researchers focused on protecting and restoring the eelgrass ecosystem.

Our 10-acre site adjacent to the bay hosts summer camp, our youth conservation leadership program, and numerous volunteer opportunities.
