The south eastern waterfront in San Francisco is a site for feeding, roosting and nesting birds. Pier structures along the bay are currently used by a variety of bird species. These piers contain toxic materials (creosote) and are slated for removal by the Port of San Francisco once funding becomes available. A variety of waterbirds depend on the bay all year.
Golden Gate Audubon has partnered with San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory to monitor the birds along the south eastern waterfront.
- Document the bird species that depend on San Francisco Bay along San Francisco’s south eastern waterfront.
- Expand habitat for birds and other wildlife in and along San Francisco Bay.
- Collaborate with the Port of San Francisco, the San Francisco Planning Department and other agencies and groups on proposed development projects and opportunities for parks and open space.
- Offer educational and recreational opportunities to residents, and visitors and to people that work near the south eastern waterfront in San Francisco
