The San Francisco Bay Area Network (SFAN) works with eight national park units located along the Pacific coast of central California.

These parks encompass a staggering diversity of ecosystems. Situated in one of the most biologically rich areas in the world, the parks include open ocean and rocky intertidal zones, brackish estuaries and wetlands, and freshwater streams and ponds. On land, habitats include everything from sandy beaches and dunes to grasslands, scrub, and forests, to caves and high rocky spires. See the links below to learn more about each of these unique environments.
