The Envelope Please: Save The Bay’s Calendar Contest Wraps Up

Photographs by local photographers Mike Oria, Hank Christensen, Karen Eul, Dave Gordon, Nancy Parker, Fred Rowe, Steve Zamek, Jill Zwicky will be featured in our 2016 calendar.

Thank you to everyone who submitted photographs to our 2016 Save The Bay Calendar contest sharing with us their unique perspectives on our Bay.  We had an amazing 194 photographers submit photos ranging from landscapes highlighting Chrissy Field  and McLaughlin Eastshore State Park to photos featuring birds including the Long Billed Curlew and Marbled Godwits.

I’m pleased to share the winners of the 2016 Calendar Photo Contest. These photos highlight the unique, inspiring and strikingly beautiful images of San Francisco Bay. Each one of these pictures reminds me why I’m passionate about protecting, restoring and celebrating San Francisco Bay.

The Votes Are In:
