The Black Oystercatcher pictured here is one of many species of Bay birds impacted by the “Mystery Goo.” Photo by: Rick Lewis It has been painful over the last week to witness the impact of the “mystery goo” on birds in the Bay – a few of our staff saw the struggling birds and the people trying to help them near our restoration sites.

Click to view slideshow. January 19, 2015 — A day that could only be described by Martin Luther King Junior himself, “everyone can be great, because anyone can serve…” Perhaps it was the significance behind this observed holiday, the opportunity to restore the wetlands at Martin Luther King Junior Regional Shoreline, or the anticipation of the King Tides that excited and inspired Save...
