Redwood Region Audubon Society advocates for protection of birds and wildlife by supporting local conservation efforts to protect wildlife and their habitat.

The ultimate objective is to reduce congestion on Broadway. Some of the proposed options include new road(s) through the wetland areas along the bay. Input, ideas, suggestions, etc., are being requested. This is your chance to get involved, and potentially make an impact!
