Help Us Save Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve
One of the last urban shoreline nature preserves is under threat from city planning and a lack of funding. We need our entire community to understand the value of this magical place and contribute in any way possible. Please donate or volunteer.

The phone, email, text and PM have been “ringing off the hook” this week, as the word gets out throughout the Bay Area that we ARE holding our 10th Annual San Francisco Bay Osprey Days, June 24-26, 2022. And, friends have been posting and telling us where they have seen osprey nesting in the Bay. Here’s local Vallejo resident, Jimmy Sarmiento’s Facebook post “Memory” that came up. This is by far, the biggest “WOW!!” photo I have ever seen of an osprey with a fish. It is also a great story as Jimmy tells it. I am eager to return to our Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve visitor center, because inside it’s doors, we have been locked out of by the City of Vallejo since September 2019, is a fabulous custom print on aluminum of this photo. It is stunning!!

Hi and good afternoon, My Mare Island Shoreline Heritage Preserve Users! We are so close, we are holding our breath (well, almost). Think about starting out in December of 2019 when we started this online effort with one, just one signature to return our nonprofit land trust, the Mare Island Heritage Trust, to the management of the Mare Island Preserve. Now, we are closing in on, so very close to, 10,000. We CAN do this.Notice that our original post says, Reopen Mare Island Preserve Now! Lots of people think that because the City of Vallejo public works department did eventually open the Preserve back up, that we are finished. Oh, Hell NO!

Let’s recall for a moment, WHY we created our petition to Reopen the Mare Island Preserve Now! on Thanksgiving weekend 2019. Simple. Not in ANY way because we are blaming the Mayor, City Council or Staff for their decision to address post September 2019 fire issues in...
