Environmental Education

Save The Bay's award-winning Watershed Education Program allows students to discover the natural treasure that defines our region: San Francisco Bay. Using the Bay as our classroom and laboratory, we offer field trips to middle and high school students that teach and inspire ecological stewardship and community leadership.

Students and teachers will gain an awareness of the Bay and the connections between their daily lives and local wetlands, and a sense of responsibility for the Bay.
