save the bay


Since 1961, Save the Bay’s leadership team has taken inspiration from our three courageous founders, Sylvia McLaughlin, Kay Kerr and Esther Gulick. Their bravery and determination has served as our guide in expanding the scope of Save The Bay’s programming, from preventing Bay fill to restoring wetlands, reducing pollution, and educating future generations of Bay stewards.
Year after year, we push ourselves to confront major challenges—such as climate change and sea level rise—in collaborative and groundbreaking ways.

Getting Involved

Every year, tens of thousands of people give their time and money to move our mission forward. Our work is only possible because of your care and commitment to saving San Francisco Bay.
From transplanting seedlings within our nurseries to removing harmful invasive species, volunteers are essential to the success of Save The Bay’s restoration work.
