North Richmond Shoreline

The North Richmond Shoreline provides vital habitat for hundreds of thousands of birds and other wildlife. The Shoreline’s 500 acres of tidal wetlands and 800 acres of mudflats offer roosting, foraging, and nesting habitat for birds throughout the year.

To learn more about the birds of the North Richmond Shoreline, Golden Gate Audubon partnered with experienced birders and members of the local community to conduct surveys at four locations in the North Richmond Shoreline: Pt. Pinole Regional Shoreline, Wildcat Creek Park, the West County Landfill Loop trail, and the West County Wastewater Treatment Plant ponds. Our work was supported by a grant from CalFed in partnership with the Natural Heritage Institute.

Our observers recorded 138,155 birds and 93 species of waterbirds, shorebirds, raptors, and corvids in the North Richmond Shoreline.
