Francesca Demgen

Board Member

Francesca is the founder and president of the Friends of San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge. As a wetland scientist working in San Francisco Bay for the past 40 years, she has designed tidal and seasonal wetland restoration sites, monitored fish, bird, and plant growth at these new wetlands. Her involvement with the Refuge began while she was a core member of the community group that kept Cullinan Ranch from growing houses instead of waterfowl and then helping the USFWS to acquire and finally restore the 1,463 acre property.
