Partnership with USGS

The National Wildlife Refuge System is committed to building partnerships which encourage conservation and preservation of our natural and cultural resources.  Partnerships with the Refuge System bring innovative approaches to solving land management and water disputes in the most environmentally protective manner.  Scientifically-informed and technologically-based stewardship of our public lands, waters, wildlife and special places must be collaborative efforts between the Refuge System, other government agencies, and private organizations if conservation efforts are to succeed.

San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge has partnerships with many governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations, and individuals to conduct wildlife monitoring, habitat restoration, facility maintenance activities, environmental education, and outreach.

Friends of San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge is a nonprofit group that supports the refuge in promoting conservation and appreciation of the refuge's natural resources, and engaging the community in activities that meet their mission.  

The refuge will continue to explore other potential avenues for partnerships and assistance to achieve its mission and goals.  Current partners include California Coastal Conservancy - Invasive Spartina Project, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, Friends of San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Point Blue (PRBO) Conservation Science, Save the Bay, Sonoma Land Trust, Ducks Unlimited, Audubon, U.S. Geological Survey, and our local mosquito abatement districts.
