Save The Bay’s mission is to protect, restore and celebrate the San Francisco Bay. We focus on restoring vital tidal marsh habitat at 7 different sites around the Bay Area. Tidal marshes are key in protecting our shoreline communities from flooding due to sea level rise and large storms.

Join us to discover why tidal marshes are so important in meeting the challenges caused by climate change. Save The Bay staff will take you to the shoreline to explain the phenomenon of sea level rise and what Bay Area residents can do to protect our community. Then, follow us to Eden Landing Ecological Reserve and our native plant nursery to see how our Habitat Restoration Team building up our first line of defense from sea level rise. Finally, you’ll be able to test your scientific skills in a Monitoring Challenge!

Event Host

We protect and restore San Francisco Bay for people and wildlife, uniting the Bay Area to create a clean and healthy Bay. As climate change and pollution threaten the Bay, we lead initiatives to make our region sustainable for future generations. Our student programs, aligned with California’s Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, help students gain an understanding of Bay ecology and local wetlands, drawing on the connections between human actions and the impact on the environment.
