Salt Marsh Walk-Special King Tide Editions

Sunday | January 18, 2015 | 10:00 am

Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center | 1 Marshlands Rd., Fremont, CA 94555

Take a walk with docent Gregg Aronson around the wetlands of the wildlife refuge and learn about their history. On both dates, the salt marsh will be inundated by the king tides, an incredible phenomena that happens only a 2-3 times a year. See examples of salt collection ponds and learn what is being done to convert them back to their original, natural salt marsh state. Hear how wildlife is affected by the two types of habitat, and why it is important to control the rate of conversion from salt ponds back to the salt marshes. Binoculars and/or a camera are recommended.
