A project of the San Diego Audubon Society and our ReWild Coalition of over 60 community partners, ReWild Mission Bay seeks to enhance and restore the natural wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay.
We’re working to ensure cleaner water, greater climate resiliency, increased carbon sequestration, and improved public access along our shared bayfront.
Thank You for Joining Us at Love Your Wetlands Day!
ReWild supporters, neighbors, and volunteers converged on Kendall-Frost Marsh at Love Your Wetlands Day to plant native species, pick up litter, learn more about our coastal wetland habitats, and participate in a Kumeyaay Tule boat construction workshop.
Read more about the day, and how San Diegans’ interest in the preservation and restoration of wetland ecosystems and accessible public lands like Mission Bay is clearer than ever. The time has come to ReWild Mission Bay!
WHY MISSION BAY IS IMPORTANT
- Mission Bay comprises 4,600 acres of water outlined by 27 miles of shoreline.
- At least 144 bird species and 56 plant species call Mission Bay home, including several endangered species.
- Mission Bay’s coastal wetlands protect San Diego from the impacts of climate change.
- Mission Bay is the largest man made aquatic recreational area in the United States.
- Mission Bay provides opportunities for local communities and tourists alike to enjoy the outdoors. More than 15 million visitors enjoy Mission Bay every year.
The northeast corner of Mission Bay is land that was historically occupied and used by Indigenous communities, Kumeyaay (‘Iipay and Tipai). The ReWild Mission Bay project seeks to create opportunities for Kumeyaay to reconnect to this area where they have lived and celebrated since time immemorial, and from which they were recently displaced.
