San Francisco Bay: Beautiful views. Bold ideas and innovative people. Diverse cities… And nature so close, it’s in the fabric of our daily life.
This is our Bay, and we believe it deserves to be celebrated because there’s no place like it in the world. That’s why we’re establishing Bay Day—one official day every year for everyone to come together and celebrate the Bay.
Bay Day is like Earth Day… for our Bay
Bay Day is one official day every year for the entire Bay Area to celebrate our Bay. Families, communities, and businesses throughout the region will celebrate Bay Day in their own, unique ways, but we are all united in our San Francisco Bay pride. We’re launching Bay Day on Saturday October 1, 2016.
More than a stunning view
Why celebrate our Bay? Don’t be fooled by the bridges, levees, and city skylines—the Bay is wild and alive. In fact, it’s the largest and most ecologically important estuary on the west coast. It is home to 400 native species, an important stop for migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway, and a rich habitat for salmon, herring and many other fish. Larger animals including harbor seals, porpoises, sea lions, and seven species of sharks all call the Bay home.
Our Bay plays such a big role in the amazing quality of life we enjoy here in the Bay Area, and whether it’s a view from the hills, brunch on the waterfront, a walk on the Bay Trail, or kayaking the shoreline, there’s always more to explore.
