Osprey nest next to Pier 94
Osprey have nested atop a maritime crane next to GGAS’ wetlands restoration site at Pier 94 – the first documented Osprey nest in the city of San Francisco. The Chronicle wrote a story about it on July 6. (Alas, no birds were visible during the photographer’s brief visit so she only got a photo of the nest.)
Many thanks to the Port of San Francisco for their support of the nest: They stopped crane operations for the duration of nesting season.
And many thanks to the thousand volunteers who, since 2002, have planted over 500 native plants, pulled 80 cubic yards of non-native weeds, and removed 1,500 gallon bins filled with trash and material for recycling. YOU have helped recreate a small Eden of wetlands that is a good place for Osprey to call home!
