FC04: Living Wetlands: Environmental Education at Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge

    Take a trip to Alviso to visit the Environmental Education Center of theDon Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, the first urban National Wildlife Refuge established in the United States. The refuge is dedicated to preserving and enhancing wildlife habitat, protecting migratory birds, protecting threatened and endangered species, and providing opportunities for wildlife-oriented recreation and nature study for the surrounding communities. The Environmental Education Center at the southern end of San Francisco Bay is surrounded by uplands, marshes, salt ponds, and a freshwater tidal slough. Trails and a new boardwalk through the seasonal wetland habitat makes it easy to see and explore the natural wonders of the South Bay. During the field trip activities, you will explore the topics of water use, wetlands,and habitat preservation through three in-depth activities. A key focus for the Living Wetlands program is to demonstrate the relationship between our personal habits and their effects on local habitats and overall watershed health. All activities are correlated to fit California content standards.
