Golden Gate Audubon Society presents:

Conservation Victories

Thursday, March 16, 6:30pm-8:30pm, Berkeley


It's a long and proud list: California least tern, California Brown Pelican, Ridgway's rail, Alameda whipsnake, Suaeda californica (known as "California sea-blite" and yes - it's a plant - we're broadminded). What do they have in common? They all are endangered species that continue to exist in our part of the Bay Area, along with tens of thousands of shorebirds and waterfowl, because of Golden Gate Audubon's successful efforts in preserving their essential habitats (with help from friends and allies). From the tidal marshes and seasonal wetlands at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Regional Shoreline Park to the upland nesting grounds at the closed Alameda Naval Air Station, From San Francisco's Pier 94 and Heron's Head Park to Orinda's Gateway Valley, to the McLaughlin Eastshore State Park. GGAS has played a crucial role in shaping the habitat face of our region. This program will describe the struggles and victories and the wonderful results of our efforts.

Arthur Feinstein served GGAS over 20-years as Conservation Chair, President and Executive Director. Arthur was awarded the national Clean Water Network's 30-Year Heroes Award and the National Audubon's Bay Champion Award. Arthur is currently on the Executive Committee of Sierra Club California and Board of the SF Bay Joint Venture, among others.
