Tide Rising: Volume 1, Issue 2, Winter 2019.

The San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society is happy to publish the second issue of its new, digital-only newsletter, Tide Rising: Volume 1, Issue 2, Winter 2019. This issue’s theme is Restoration, Reflection, and Discovery.

As the San Francisco Bay Wildlife Society publishes its second digital online newsletter, we reflect on the work the Society, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and partners have done to restore habitats and locations that were changed by humans in past years.

In this issue:

  • Learn about the Antioch Dunes NWR from Louis Terrazas, USFWS Wildlife Resource Specialist.
  • Susan Euing, USFWS Wildlife Biologist, will share the Complex’s efforts to restore an endangered species, the Least Tern, at the Veteran’s Affairs Alameda Point (VAAP) colony.
  • Francesca Demgen describes how volunteers and USFWS staff are working to restore and grow the North Bay Refuges.
  • How USFWS staff help us all the time!
  • How volunteers make a difference.

Thanks for reading!

Let us know what you think of our second issue of Tide Rising. The newsletter continues to be a work-in-progress. If you can help (editing, articles, etc.) reach out to newsletter[at]sfbws[dot]com and enter “VOLUNTEER” in the subject line of your email.

What do you want to hear about in upcoming issues? Spring quarter the theme will be Endangered and Threatened Species; Summer quarter will focus on Exploration and Learning. Write us at the Newsletter address newsletter[at]sfbws[dot]com with ideas, comments, and questions.

See previous issues of the newsletter, Tide Rising, for articles about animals, habitats, restoration efforts, people (volunteers and staff), research, and Society efforts. The newsletter is sent quarterly using Constant Contact via email if you have signed up for it. In addition, you will be able to download a printable PDF file from the Society website.

In each issue, we will share information from other partners as well as new ideas and opportunities for partnerships. Look for articles from our sister Friends organization, Friends of the San Pablo Bay NWR, highlighting volunteers and FWS staff, as well as providing information about advocacy.
