North Richmond Shoreline Open Space Alliance is a group of
neighborhood, social justice, community and environmental organizations
and individuals committed to saving access to the last remaining
open space along the northern shoreline of Richmond, California
between Point Molate and Point Pinole.
Once home to the Ohlone Indians,
the shoreline, with its views of the Bay, improves our quality
of life, provides us with healthy recreation and allows our diverse
underserved communities to have access to open space.
Habitat to millions of migrating birds including the endangered
clapper rail, the shoreline's beautiful 500 acres of tidal marshes
and 800 acres of mudflats are home to many threatened and endangered
embracing the shoreline, grow two-thirds of all the eelgrass in
the San Francisco Bay - its largest eelgrass bed. This is critical
habitat for salmon and Pacific herring.
Please explore our website
to learn more about the shoreline and how you can take
action to save the shoreline.
