Don Edwards San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge is an area of 30,000 acres of open bay, salt marsh, salt pond, mudflat, and vernal and upland pool habitats. It is located in the southern part of San Francisco Bay in California, with its headquarters and visitors center located in Fremont, next to Coyote Hills Regional Park. The refuge mostly stretches along the shore of the verdant marsh north and south of the Dumbarton Bridge. Bair Island, part of San Mateo County, is also part of the refuge. Founded in 1974, the refuge was the first urban National Wildlife Refuge in the US and it is dedicated to protecting, preserving, and enhancing the habitat of wild animals, protecting threatened and endangered animals and migratory birds, and providing wonderful opportunities for nature-oriented recreation and education.
