It’s hard to visualize what over 100,000 California native plants looks like. But it’s exciting to think of the habitat they will create when fully established at our restoration sites around the San Francisco Bay. Save The Bay’s Habitat Restoration team is very proud of the accomplishments made this past planting season, reaching our most ambitious goals to date with a grand total of 103,770...
The South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project has restored about 3,000 acres of habitat in the past 12 years, and the local bird population has doubled. With adequate funding, this project would restore 15,000 acres. Measure AA would fund critical restoration projects like this one. Photo courtesy of NASA.

Examples of projects that could be eligible for funds generated by Measure AA. Map courtesy of San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority Measure AA for a Clean and Healthy Bay on the June ballot would generate, via a modest $12 parcel tax, badly needed funding for restoration of San Francisco Bay wetlands to benefit people, wildlife and the Bay Area economy.  Here are some examples of specific...
Save The Bay moms Kyung Hee Egoian, Robin Erickson, and Maria Boerner spent the morning volunteering with their children at Oro Loma. This Mother’s Day we want to celebrate our Save the Bay Moms and the work they put in not only in saving the Bay, but in raising their children in this wonderful place. Ever since I became a Mom I wanted to do something to leave this world a better place for my...
The Berkeley Yacht Club chose Save The Bay’s founders as ‘Heroes of the Bay’ for the Opening Day on the Bay parade. Opening Day on the Bay is a long-standing tradition to launch the boating season on San Francisco Bay. Since 1917, sailors have paraded their vessels as a celebration of spring and their love for sailing the waters of our beloved Bay. The parade’s theme this year...
Originally published in the San Francisco Chronicle on May 1, 2016.  Talk with anyone working to restore marshes and wetlands along San Francisco Bay, and they’ll say there’s no shortage of projects that are all but ready to go — except for the lack of funds. If Measure AA passes on June 7, that job gets easier to the tune of roughly $25 million a year. “This would be a huge benefit for us,” said...

Local cleanup efforts have made Los Gatos Creek healthier for Chinook salmon. For the past 3 years, the South Bay Clean Creeks Coalition has been a community-based volunteer effort struggling to restore our trash-clogged South Bay Creeks and Rivers, removing over 140 tons of trash. Prior to this effort, the winter storms carried much of this trash downstream and into the Bay. As this work has...
Like many people around the Bay Area, I grew up reading the cartoon funny pages of various newspapers. Sometimes on Sunday mornings, reading the comics page became a sort of scavenger hunt. My Dad would read the paper on the couch or on the porch, then my mother would take it and read it at the kitchen table or in bed. When I finally woke up around 2pm nobody knew where the paper was anymore, yet...
Volunteer w/ our restoration team Our restoration team loves having members of the public join the front lines of Bay Area conservation. Volunteer restoration days are a great hands-on learning experience for kids as well as adults. The program helps promote environmental stewardship, and the work done in the field will quickly transform into pride in a job well done. Celebrate Earth Day by...

Let's hear from you!
"A team of colleagues from Juniper Networks joined you all at San Francisquito Creek in late December, and even though it was a wet and chilly day, we had a great time planting seedlings. It was great to see how much my colleagues and friends loved participating, and just about everyone is clamoring for another volunteer stint in the spring. Thanks Save the Bay!" --Carolyn
