This is a partnership project between UC San Diego Natural Reserve System and San Diego Audubon Society.

Become a Docent at the Kendall-Frost Marsh Reserve

Do you love birds, the environment, and educating others? Volunteer to become a docent for the new Wander the Wetlands project based out of the Kendall-Frost Marsh Reserve, and become an expert on the birds and natural history of Kendall-Frost Marsh, and the restoration programs in Mission Bay.

This is the last remaining coastal wetland in Mission Bay - the last 1% of what Mission Bay was, and the seed that our ReWild wetlands will grow from. It's home to unique and threatened birds including the Ridgway's Rail and Belding's Savannah Sparrow, as well as plenty of other intertidal species. It is a fragile habitat, and we need dedicated docents to help ensure that the public can enjoy this habitat responsibly.

Want to be a docent for this program? Email our Docent Coordinator Savannah at stallings@sandiegoaudubon.org to find out how to get involved.
