ReWild Mission Bay is project of San Diego Audubon and our ReWild Coalition partners to enhance and restore the natural wetlands in the northeast corner of Mission Bay for cleaner water, greater climate resiliency, carbon sequestration, and improved access to our public space, including for Native Americans, along our shared Bayfront.
The northeast corner of Mission Bay is land that was historically occupied and used by Indigenous communities, Kumeyaay (‘Iipay and Tipai), and the ReWild 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.
