The global effort to stop plastic from choking our oceans is under attack Nov. 8. Proposition 67 on California’s ballot would ban giveaways of single-use plastic shopping bags throughout our state, not just in individual coastal and Bay Area cities. Passing Proposition 67 would reduce plastic pollution and boost the movement for bag bans throughout the United States. But failing to pass it...
As the mom of an inquisitive 7 year old, I’m always looking for fun and beautiful places for my family to learn more about San Francisco Bay.  Here are 5 of my favorite places to learn, play and explore: Exploratorium: Science-based learning is a huge part of our mission here at Save The Bay.  And the Exploratorium located at Pier 15 in San Francisco shares that value. With hundreds of exhibits...
Many employers offer matching gift programs, doubling or sometimes even tripling the impact of your gift. Some companies also provide matching gifts for spouses, retirees or employee volunteer hours that help extend the reach of your footprint on the health of the Bay. Billions of dollars in employer matching funds go unclaimed at the end of each year, mostly because many employees don’t even...
As an important member of our Save The Bay family, you know that we won’t rest on past successes.  We fought hard and won on Measure AA—but with the November election comes a new ballot fight: Banning single-use plastic bags in California by passing Prop. 67. If we’re going to win this and other important fights for our Bay, we need your help.  Disposable plastic bags kill fish and wildlife....
Congratulations to our 2017 Calendar Cover Photo Winner, Andrew Carothers-Liske, with this stunning photo of a Western Burrowing Owl. Three fun facts about Western Burrowing Owls: Western Burrowing Owls live in abandoned rodent holes, previously occupied by fossorial mammals such as prairie dogs and ground squirrels.

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...

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
