Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary staff and volunteers work to preserve and improve sustainable access to habitat in our Sanctuary and throughout San Francisco Bay for birds and people. We use our site as an outdoor classroom to inspire stewardship and engage future conservation leaders of all backgrounds and identities in our community.
Our sanctuary is located on Richardson Bay and is comprised of 10.5 acres of uplands and 900 acres of subtidal bay. We are part of a nation-wide network of National Audubon Society nature centers, chapters, and programs focused on bird conservation and public engagement. The public is welcome to explore our site Monday through Friday between 9am and 5pm, and occasional Saturdays (9am-5pm). Please understand our site is a wildlife sanctuary. Pets are not allowed.
