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...

Some of our staff started their journey with Save The Bay as participants in the Fellowship Program. Our organization benefits greatly from having support from our Fellows, and when a variety of factors fall into place, a few Fellows have been able to step into open positions on our staff. It’s a great feeling when we’ve gotten to know these individuals professionally and personally as Fellows,...
A Way to Help Save the Bay The San Francisco Chronicle published the following endorsement of Measure AA on April 8, 2016 The bay is what we love about living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It defines the landscape, sets the mood with its ever-changing aspect, helps provide the foods we love and connects us with nature — whether you sail the bay, walk the bay shore, bird-watch or just cross the...
Rochelle dressed as a Shark in honor of Shark Week. Photo taken by: Nathaniel Downes, SF Examiner Rochelle Reuter was a Communications Fellow in 2014. Since then, she has been spending her days at St. Anthony’s providing essential services to San Franciscans living in poverty.  To be honest, I never thought I would be working at a social service non-profit. I’ve always believed in equal...
Have you seen a river otter? Add your sighting to the Otter Spotter map. Photo credit: sfwildlife.com. River otters are making a come back to the Bay Area! Learn more about these amazing creatures from Megan Isadore of The River Otter Ecology Project.  Like many kids, I fell in love with river otters through “Ring of Bright Waters,” the movie about Mij, a playful, lovable and beloved otter...
After years of hard work, Save The Bay has decided to expand our mission beyond the scope of San Francisco Bay. With new threats to the Bay like climate change, urban pollution, and promise of an exponentially increasing population in the Bay Area, we feel that it’s time to shift our focus to what really matters, you! As of April 1, our new mission is to inspire Bay Area citizens to Save The Day...
We are living in a material world, and the consequences are not pretty. Recent research reveals that every time we wash our clothes, we are all polluting the Bay. Half the clothing on the market is made of synthetic material derived from plastic (acrylic, nylon, spandex, and polyester). One item of synthetic clothing can produce up to 1900 microfibers per wash. These microscopic fibers pass...

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
