Featured Project

Eden Landing Ecological Reserve Restoration Project

Over the past 20 years, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), in conjunction with many other SFBJV other partners, has transformed portions of the Eden Landing Reserve, a 6400-acre site. As a result, hundreds of acres are now open to the Bay, ponds for birdlife have been enhanced, trails installed, trash removed, and invasive plants replaced with natives. Most recently, as part of the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project (SBSPRP), more public access has been provided, including a kayak launch and opportunities to view and learn about 19th Century saltworks.
