Baykeeper Marks 25 Years of Protecting the Bay from Pollution
Baykeeper is marking our 25th anniversary this year! With the support of our members, we've protected San Francisco Bay from pollution for a quarter century.
During this anniversary year, we will be sharing highlights of Baykeeper's proud history of successful action for a cleaner and healthier San Francisco Bay. (Photo credit: Bart Quigley)
Plus, we invite you to take part. Look for more details soon on our 25th Anniversary Party—we hope to see you there! And we would love for you to tell us about how you've experienced San Francisco Bay over the years. See below for details.
Tell Us About You and San Francisco Bay
Have you had an important, memorable, or moving experience with San Francisco Bay in the past 25 years? Baykeeper invites you to share it with us!
Tell us about you and the Bay. Have you watched the Bay change colors from your window? Encountered a friendly seal on a kayak ride across Raccoon Strait? Do you remember your first plunge into chilly waters at Aquatic Park? Or the salty air on a ferry commute? Have you splashed with your kids at an East Bay beach, or admired avocets in a South Bay slough? Wobbled through your first stand-up paddleboard in Richardson Bay or sailed on a day that felt like paradise? Whether your experience happened many years ago, took place just yesterday, or happens every day, we want to know how the Bay has played a role in your life.
