Autodesk employees help Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary with hundreds of plants and trees…

On February 17, 2016, Center for Volunteer & Nonprofit Leadership (CVNL) partnered with RBACS for a day of service and team building with more than a dozen Autodesk employees. Immediately upon arrival, volunteers were energized and ready to engage and contribute to rehabilitation of RBACS’ natural ecosystems. Volunteers worked in teams in RBACS native plant nursery to assemble plants that will be transported on boards to Aramburu Island. Autodesk employees also created flower beds around the historic Lyford House.

Enjoy the slideshow of photos from the day.



Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary staff and volunteers focus on waterbird conservation in their Sanctuary and northern San Francisco Bay and use their site as an outdoor classroom to inspire and educate our community. Audubon’s mission is to conserve and restore natural ecosystems, focusing on birds, other wildlife, and their habitats for the benefit of humanity and the earth’s biological diversity.

The sanctuary is located on Richardson Bay and is comprised of 10.5 acres of uplands and 900 acres of subtidal bay. They are part of a nation-wide network of National Audubon Society nature centers, chapters, and programs focused on bird conservation and public engagement.
