We're Celebrating 20 Years of Protecting the Bay
Baykeeper is celebrating our 20th anniversary this month! With the help of committed supporters like you, we’ve been the pollution watchdog of San Francisco Bay for two decades now. We're launching our next 20 years of protecting the Bay by asking our supporters to join the new Bay Stewards program to make sustaining gifts to Baykeeper. Bay Stewards make regular monthly gifts, which helps us save money on administrative costs – so your gift goes further to support our work. Please join our campaign for the future of the Bay.
Speak Out Against Offshore Drilling Thursday
This Thursday, the debate over offshore drilling comes to San Francisco. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has invited members of the public, officials, advocates and native tribes to testify so that the Obama Administration can gauge public opinion on offshore energy proposals. Make your voice heard by testifying at the hearing, volunteering to help or attending the noon rally at UCSF Mission Bay. Stop by the Baykeeper table at the rally to learn more about our ongoing work to protect the Bay from oil spills and other forms of pollution.
