The Place

        Don Edwards, the first urban Wildlife Refuge established in the United States, is dedicated to preserving and enhancing wildlife habitat, protecting migratory birds. The Refuge spans 30,000 acres of open bay, salt pond, salt marsh, mudflat, upland and vernal pool habitats. The Refuge hosts over 280 species of birds each year. Millions of shorebirds and waterfowl stop to refuel at the Refuge during the spring and fall migration. The Don Edwards, founded in 1974 is part of a complex made up of six other wildlife refuges in the San Francisco Bay Area.
