"Look Up" Campaign Activities - 2018

 


Saturday, March 3, 2018 - 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Snowy Plover Mud Stomp, Hayward, Free

SFBBO is hosting our first Mud Stomp to enhance plover habitat at Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Hayward. Volunteers will stomp in the mud to create a more textured and diverse habitat for plovers to nest, roost, and hide from predators. While some volunteers will stomp the mud to create impressions, others will spread oyster shells within the stomped areas. Throughout the event there will be opportunities to view Snowy Plovers and lots of other shorebirds and waterfowl. This event is open to current SFBBO members and corporate groups. To participate, please contact Plover Program Director Ben Pearl, bpearl@sfbbo.org.
