New East Bay Ecological Reserve

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. Along with the new trail, the project includes a new kayak launch, 230 acres of salt ponds where shorebirds forage and rest, remnants of the saltworks where Japanese workers labored a century ago, and 630 acres of tidal marsh in various stages of restoration.
