Bay Nature writes about a new ecological reserve in the East Bay for Hikers, Bikers, Birders, and Boaters
Eden Landing Ecological Reserve near Hayward, where 6,400 acres of salt ponds are being restored to marsh and shorebird habitat.
The marsh viewing area is halfway into the new Eden Landing Trail, a 3.8-mile loop that opened to the public last spring.
