Ranger Walk at the New Chicago Marsh
It's been a while since we've seen all of our wonderful Refuge neighbors out at the Environmental Education Center!
We will be outside the EEC from 4:00 pm-6:00 pm with a table, to say hello, answer any questions, recommend trails, hand out goodies, and welcome everyone back.
The Walk into the New Chicago Marsh with Ranger Giessell will start at 4:30 pm depending on the number of interested visitors. On the walk, you will hopefully spot some incredible wildlife, learn about our wetlands & watersheds, and even discover why our marsh along the San Francisco Bay is named after Chicago! (The walk will be limited to 15 visitors at a time and additional ranger-led walks are TBD until 6:00 pm).
We also hope you will also take the time to explore the Butterfly Garden in celebration of Pollinator Week 2022, and even take home some ideas about how to support pollinators in your own outdoor spaces.

- Our Refuge gates at the Environmental Education Center in Alviso usually close at 5:00 pm every evening. We hope to keep them open until the event ends, but parking will be available outside the gates just in case.
This program is brought to you by the Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society (SFBWS), and the Santa Clara Valley Urban Runoff Pollution Prevention Program (SCVURPPP).
