Here at Save The Bay we rely on dedicated volunteers to accomplish big goals. Beta Alpha Psi, an academic fraternity from CSU East Bay, is one of our devoted groups that has come out again and again to help with our restoration efforts. Last month we were able to get to know Thomas Huffman, a Beta Alpha Psi member, group organizer, and recent graduate, a bit better and learn about his experience with Save The Bay.
