Bay Area Science Events
A century ago, herons and egrets were rare in the San Francisco Bay area. Now, after a long recovery from intensive hunting and habitat loss, these elegant birds have become symbols of wetland health and conservation. You’ll take a fascinating look into the lives of herons and egrets, with insights from ongoing studies at Audubon Canyon Ranch on the conservation of wetland landscapes, the effects of climate change, and the protection of heronries. In addition, John will share recent work on shorebird responses to tidal marsh restoration in Tomales Bay and the dependence of wintering water birds on Pacific herring spawning.
