Tern up for California Least Tern Conservation!
Least Tern Colony Viewing
This event is currently full. If you'd like to join a waitlist, please contact [email protected].
Join SFBBO biologists at Eden Landing Ecological Reserve to view one of only six California Least Tern (Sternula antillarum browni) breeding colonies in the San Francisco Bay! California Least Terns are endangered ground-nesting seabirds, and SFBBO biologists and volunteers actively monitor the colony breeding on enhanced former salt production ponds at Eden Landing. We will look for adults incubating nests, young downy chicks being fed by their parents, older feathered chicks running around the colony, and fledglings learning to fly!
We will provide some spotting scopes for attendees to use, but please bring spotting scopes if you have your own. Families are welcome, but please note that all attendees will need to stay together throughout the duration of the event and that a restroom will only be available at the beginning and end of the event.
This event is limited to 20 participants. In accordance with SFBBO's COVID-19 safety protocols, we ask participants to wear a well-fitting mask at the event and fill out an online health self-assessment form the day before the event.
Please check back soon!
