Upcoming Baykeeper Events

September 20: Volunteers Needed for Coastal Cleanup Day

Baykeeper needs your help to clean up the Bay this weekend! Saturday is California Coastal Cleanup Day, when thousands of volunteers come together to pick up trash from our bays, beaches, rivers and creeks. Baykeeper is hosting a cleanup at India Basin Shoreline Park in southeast San Francisco, where the Bay shoreline is heavily littered with marine debris. Just an hour or two of your time will make a big difference in helping clean up the Bay. Click here to volunteer.

October 14: Wine & Spirits Top 100

Wine & Spirits Top 100 wine tasting is a benefit event for Baykeeper! We get a portion of all ticket sales, and you get to taste the hundred hottest new wines on the market, plus fresh oysters, hand-crafted salumi and the best in local cuisine. Tickets start at $125.

October 19: YMCA Open Water Swim in the Bay

Baykeeper is participating in this year’s YMCA 1.5 mile open water swim, and you’re invited to join us! Our own Staff Attorney will be swimming in the Bay she works daily to protect, and the Baykeeper boat is taking a break from pollution patrols to shepherd swimmers. If you’re a swimmer, surfer or kayaker, join us on the Bay for this fun event to benefit Youth Chance High School. Click here for more information.
