The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project (the Project) is a 15,000-acre San Francisco Bay wetland restoration project managed by the State Coastal Conservancy, US Fish and Wildlife Service and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife. A key objective of the Project is to provide quality public access. Trails and trail amenities, including interpretive displays and viewing platforms, were installed at each of the three pond complexes during Phase 1 of the Project (SBSP 2007). As part of our waterbird response to trail use research, we collected data on trail users, their trail activities, and their level of satisfaction with their public access experience. This study will help managers understand what experiences and/or amenities are sought by the public and how these interests can be integrated into an overall plan to provide public access while protecting species
