Event Tags:
Marin Audubon Society Speaker Series
Thu Oct 11, 7:30pm |
Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary, 376 Greenwood Beach Rd., Tiburon

Seagrasses are one of the most productive ecosystems in the world, providing spawning habitat for fish in addition to food resources for birds that migrate along the Pacific Flyway. San Francisco Bay is home to the largest expanse of eelgrass beds in California, and is therefore a conservation priority for Audubon. This talk will discuss threats to eelgrass, herring, and waterbirds in San Francisco Bay and the opportunities for conservation.

Julia Kelly, PhD, is the San Francisco Bay Conservation Program Manager for Audubon California. Julia specializes in avian ecology and leads Audubon's waterbird program and restoration projects in the estuary.
