Volunteer

You can have fun outdoors, learn about the Bay and help us protect it by joining one of our on-the-Bay programs. Sign up below to volunteer to restore natural wetland habitats by hand at several sites around San Francisco Bay.

Please let us know if you are interested in scheduling a special volunteer program for your corporate or community group.

Welcoming Porpoises at the MLK, Jr. Shoreline Native Plant Nursery (Oakland)

MLK Shoreline (Oakland)

Have you heard that porpoises have returned to the Bay after 65 years of absence? A clean San Francisco Bay is important for making these mammals feel at home once again in our Bay, and healthy wetlands are essential for keeping the Bay clean. Help clear our wetlands of trash and invasive plants to make sure the porpoises know we’re happy to have them back.

Invasive Species Action Week at the Palo Alto Baylands (Palo Alto)

Sat Aug 9, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, 2014, Free
Palo Alto Baylands (Palo Alto)

Team up with Save The Bay and the California Fish and Wildlife Service for one final attack on invasive weeds during Invasive Species Action Week! Help us remove invasive plants from sites where staff and volunteers have worked hard planting native plants last winter and spring. Let’s keep these aggressive weeds from choking our native plants so they have time to establish and improve habitat for wildlife.

Weeding Wednesday at the Palo Alto Baylands Native Plant Nursery (Palo Alto)

Wed Aug 13, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm, 2014, Free
Palo Alto Baylands (Palo Alto)

Get some exercise and fresh air, all while helping Save the Bay improve habitat for wetland species like the endangered salt marsh harvest mouse and the California clapper rail. You’ll learn to identify native and invasive plants growing in the marsh, and feel satisfied making visible progress in restoring the wetland.
