      Coastal Cleanup Thumbnail

      9:30 a.m.-noon

      If you are interested in improving the refuge for visitors and for wildlife alike, join us at the Visitor Center for a community service project. We will do either a trash cleanup or a planting/weeding project. Dress appropriately for the task and for the weather. We will have gloves to lend and will provide the tools. Bring your own water bottle. Meet in the parking lot at the Visitor Center. Driving an additional 2.5 miles may be required since the project may be at a different location. For more information, or to make reservations, call 510-792-0222 ext. 361.

    • Drawbridge Van Excursion - Alviso


      Sept 8 (1:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m.)
      Nov 17 (10:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.)

      An abandoned town in the San Francisco Bay? That’s right! Nestled on an island in the salt marshes of South San Francisco Bay, the town of Drawbridge once boomed. Was it a quiet, peaceful town full of nature lovers, or people scrabbling out a living? How long did it exist? Find out at this program, led by Ceal Craig. We will start with a slideshow, and then take a short van excursion to view Drawbridge across Coyote Creek. Program will be of most interest to adults interested in history or nature; children 13 and over with an adult are welcome. Space is very limited. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Register at Eventbrite. Questions? Call Hope at 408-262-5513 ext.104.

      (Note: we do not visit the town itself. We go to the closest spot that one can legally view Drawbridge.)
