Join us and help provide valuable conservation information on waterbirds and shorebirds in the Richardson Bay Audubon Sanctuary waters and in San Pablo Bay.

We are looking for experienced birders to help with identification and counting, but non-experienced volunteers can assist with scribing.

  • Richardson Bay waterbird surveys—we are looking for experienced birders to help with twice-monthly waterbird surveys between October and March.
  • Shorebird surveys—we are looking for experienced birders to help with regular shorebird surveys for the Aramburu Island Enhancement Project.
  • San Pablo Bay waterbird surveys—we are looking for experienced birders to help with waterbirds surveys for the Sonoma Creek Enhancement Project on the San Pablo Bay NWR.

Please contact Kerry Wilcox for more information regarding surveys. 415-388-2524 x101.

Education

  • Lead weekly bird walks on the Sanctuary trails (weekdays and weekends).
  • Educate visitors about upland and water birds on site using scopes on Lyford Porch and overlook.
