We’re gearing up for a big new fight against polluters. We know we’ll be outspent, but we think we can win if we play it smart. Can you help by sharing a few quick thoughts? We’ve put together a brief survey, and your answers will help us shape our campaign. It will take less than 5 minutes. We really need your input. Thank you in advance! You can take the plastic bag ban survey here: // The...

Food Justice Ally Bobbi planting California sagebrush at the Farm Park. Photo: Julia Irwin At the West Oakland Farm Park, the spindly young California sagebrush plants are easy to miss. They look like several thin twigs stuck into the ground now, but if all goes well, one day they will be sturdy, drought-tolerant bushes as tall as a grown person – and useful to boot. “They attract native...
In the midst of all the excitement about Measure AA, I didn’t get a chance to tell you about some other very special restoration work that is near and dear to my heart—and hopefully to yours as well. Thanks in part to more than five years of hard work by my staff and many Save The Bay volunteers, we have played an important part in restoring transition zone habitat at the Eden Landing Ecological...
I am thrilled to share with you the 2017 Save The Bay calendar! A huge thank you goes to our volunteer photographers who have generously donated their stunning Bay images to our Calendar Photo Contest. These unparalleled and spectacular photos are spotlighted in the 2017 Save The Bay Calendar and serve as a monthly reminder of the importance of protecting and restoring the San Francisco Bay. The...
More than a month has gone by since Save The Bay’s members and supporters helped secure an unprecedented victory for our Bay by passing Measure AA. We have a lot to celebrate, we know we still have so much work to do. Here’s a bit of what’s next for Save The Bay: Fighting for our Bay’s fair share from the federal government While Measure AA will speed up marsh restoration and climate adaptation,...
San Francisco Bay: Beautiful views. Bold ideas and innovative people. Diverse cities… And nature so close, it’s in the fabric of our daily life. This is our Bay, and we believe it deserves to be celebrated because there’s no place like it in the world. That’s why we’re establishing Bay Day—one official day every year for everyone to come together and celebrate the Bay. Bay Day is like Earth Day...
How can art deepen our learning and understanding from a science class and how can it inspire stewardship/connection for our local ecology? I had the privilege this Spring to facilitate a multimedia mural that engaged an entire student body at a K – 3rd grade elementary school in Petaluma with this question. Further questions followed: Why create art? Why care for our environment and our local...
Jon Backus joined Save The Bay’s restoration team in 2012. He plans to continue his career in habitat restoration as a graduate student. On a foggy early morning in 2012, I stepped out of our big red Save The Bay truck into my first restoration site in East Palo Alto. Little did I know I was merely taking the first step on my long, rewarding journey with Save The Bay. As we set out tools,...
In 2014 something incredible happened: Californian legislators, environmentalists, community groups, labor unions, and business groups all came together to pass a piece of environmental legislation to ban single use plastic shopping bags. Unfortunately the state law, SB 270, which would have prohibited all grocery stores in California from giving away the often littered, unrecyclable plastic...

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
