Bay-A-Thon success! Thanks to you…

Bay-A-Thon BirdThank you for helping us reach our goal in our first-ever Bay-A-Thon!

We’re excited to report that 2,437 Save The Bay supporters came together to help us reach our $150,000 Bay-A-Thon goal. Every Bay-A-Thon donation will be matched, dollar-for-dollar, to double our resources to prevent inappropriate development  along the shoreline, restore wetlands, rid the Bay of toxic trash , and engage and educate volunteers through our community-based restoration programs. Thank you so much for your support!

We are making progress to protect our Bay. More than 65% of Bay Area residents now live in areas that have banned plastic bags, and more than 30% of communities have banned Polystyrene. More than 5,000 Save The Bay volunteers annually contribute invaluable time and energy planting native seedlings, and removing invasive species and trash from the shoreline. Every little bit counts toward the ultimate goal of re-establishing 100,000 acres of healthy tidal marsh around the Bay.

The 2013 Bay-A-Thon may be over, but saving the Bay is a year-round challenge. Let’s continue the momentum for a healthy Bay with these easy everyday actions:

Bring your own bag
Don’t flush medicine
Take Action
Follow Save The Bay

Thank you for doing your part to protect and restore our beloved San Francisco Bay!
