World Ocean’s Day at the Martin Luther King Jr. Nursery (Oakland)

Wed Jun 6, 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm, 2018
MLK Shoreline (Oakland)

Come join Save The Bay at our native plant nursery to help celebrate our oceans by caring for the next generation of plants that will restore our waterways. A restored wetland provides vital ecosystem services that benefit our oceans, such as water filtration. A healthy wetland filters toxins and pollution before it reaches the ocean and provides nursery ground for many marine species. Help us protect our oceans by protecting our wetlands!

CA Invasive Species Action Week 2018

Fri Jun 8, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm, 2018
Palo Alto Baylands (Palo Alto)

As human populations become more interconnected and globalized, they spread non-native species to new locations where they may thrive and take over, threatening the native flora and fauna that supports a healthy ecosystem. Invasive species often have severe ecological impacts and are a major threat in the San Francisco Bay. According to the Nature Conservancy, San Francisco Bay is the most invaded aquatic region in the world! Counteract this staggering fact by helping us to restore native wetland habitat as we remove invasive species at the Palo Alto Baylands.
