Baykeeper on Patrol: October 2019 Update

Oct 17, 2019

Baykeeper Senior Scientist Jon Rosenfield was recently joined by our partners from the Rose Foundation for Communities & the Environment for a Bay patrol on the Baykeeper boat. They got to see firsthand how grants to Baykeeper can make a big impact.

The patrol investigated a number of industrial facilities in Richmond, as well as the proposed site for the coal terminal we're fighting in Oakland. Plus, our crew watchdogged a dredger removing sediment along the patrol route to be sure they were following the laws (pictured).
