Its purpose is to protect wildlife habitat for endangered species and migratory birds, and to offer opportunities for nature study.

The Visitor Contact Station is open Tuesday-Sunday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and the EEC in Alviso is open weekends from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Both are closed on all federal holidays.
