New and Improved Foundation Website

New and Improved Foundation Website

We are very happy to announce that the California Ricelands Waterbird Foundation’s (Foundation) Website has been completely redesigned. 

Updates to the Foundation website integrate many great new features such as a comprehensive bird photo gallery, profiles on key bird species of special concern, information on the salmon project, and our all new Bid4Birds program. The Bid4Birds program pages provide both background information and enrollment opportunities for growers interested in flooding their fields for shorebirds. A separate e-communication will be published on the program enrollment opportunity soon.

Please take some time to browse through our new and improved website during this holiday season!
