Thanks to Eagle Scout Troop 888 and family members who helped us restore bird habitat at Pier 94 in San Francisco on March 8! The day was thoughtfully planned and organized by Coletrain Phillips, one of the Eagle Scouts.
The Scouts were energetic, friendly and super productive. The day included removing non-native invasive weeds, planting 300 native plants, watering the newly planted plants, painting over graffiti on the k-rails and back of signs.
The group took a bird walk where they observed American Avocets, Whimbrel, and Snowy Egret and other birds feeding along the Bay. After the break the Troop prepared an area for future broadcast seeding by raking the area. This was a huge amount of work accomplished in a single day.
Want to get involved? Our next habitat restoration work day at Pier 94 is on Saturday April 5 from 9 a.m. until noon. Info on the volunteer page of our web site.
