Paul Ledesma, Regional Political Organizer for Save The Bay My earliest memories of Penitencia Creek include playing on the ruins of the turn-of-the-century mineral baths. One of my favorite pastimes was searching for crawdads in the creek as it flowed through Alum Rock Park in San Jose. At that time, the area was surrounded by orchards and pasture lands that were disappearing vestiges of the...
As a documentary filmmaker, conservationist, and proud Bay Area resident, experience has taught me that when we focus on hope and solutions, our society is capable of great things. You and the Save The Bay community are proof of that. Measure AA passed earlier this year because more than 70 percent of us here in the Bay Area stood up to restore our wetlands, and to make it better and healthier...
By voting Yes on Prop 56, California voters said yes to a Butt Free Bay and to the inevitable impact it will make on reducing the amount of tobacco litter making its way into our local ecosystems. Photo by Dave Gordon. In a resounding victory for Save The Bay’s Butt Free Bay Campaign, 63 percent of Californians said Yes on Prop 56. Prop 56 will increase the tax on tobacco products by $2 per pack...
My favorite place around the Bay to go when I feel stressed or overwhelmed is Land’s End in San Francisco. The past two weeks have been emotional to say the least. The stress from the election and the approaching holiday season has got many of us looking for a way to escape. I’ve been contemplating a long vacation to Canada but I’ll most likely end up going for a long walk with my dog Bodie. This...
Californians showed their support of Prop 67 through personal testimony as “Humans of the Bay,” playing a huge part in passing this historic bag ban. There’s no question that the election left many of us discouraged, mystified, and fearful. As we all search inside and out for ways to support one another in this strange new political climate and defend the causes we believe in, it is...
Before last Tuesday, I was preparing to send a letter to our Save The Bay community about all of our remarkable accomplishments in 2016. But I had to rewrite it. It’s difficult to celebrate local and state successes when we know the environment is about to be under assault here and throughout the nation. I am gravely concerned that the Trump Administration and Congress will attack the Clean Water...
Sometimes the small victories at home can lead the way in making a big difference for the state and the nation. Photo by Mike Oria.   While the nation reckons with the unexpected victory of Donald Trump in last week’s presidential election, and we begin to make sense of the effects it may have on public policies and budgets in California and the Bay Area, San Francisco Bay supporters have a...
In partnership with Save The Bay through our inaugural Bay Day celebration, interns from Facebook volunteered at our Palo Alto Baylands restoration site for a Facebook Intern Service Day. Last week, 20 Facebook interns came out to our Palo Alto Baylands restoration site for a Facebook Intern Service Day. This event was part of a broader partnership between Save The Bay and Facebook, who was the...
Save The Bay Executive Director David Lewis has been announced as the recipient of the 2017 Bay Nature Local Hero Award for Conservation Action. He will be honored by the conservation nonprofit Bay Nature Institute alongside a “dynamic duo” in the field of citizen science, and an inspiring organizer of tree-planting initiatives in East Palo Alto. These awards are presented annually to...
In Sunnyvale, using reusable bags has turned into a lifestyle rather than just a policy. Photo: Vivian Reed Present-day Sunnyvale, California is known as “The Heart of Silicon Valley,” but if you walk into any grocery store or stroll through the downtown farmer’s market in this tech town you’ll notice another trend: people carry reusable bags when shopping. Four years ago, my hometown...

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
