by Contributed Content on November 10, 2015

USGS research wildlife biologist Susan De La Cruz will give the next free public lecture at the organizations offices in Menlo Park on November 19 at 7:00 pm. She will look at:

  • The urbanized San Francisco Bay is a critical wintering and stop-over area for more than a million migratory annually that rely on a mosaic of Bay habitats, including former salt ponds.
  • The 15,100 acre South Bay Salt Pond (SBSP) Restoration Project is in the process of restoring 50 to 90% of former salt production ponds to tidal marsh while maintaining the rest as foraging and roosting areas for migratory birds.
  • How are birds responding to the preliminary phases of this project? How can research help optimize future restoration actions to benefit
    migratory birds?

The lecture will take place in Rambo Auditorium/Bldg. 3, 345 Middlefield Rd., Menlo Park
