Save The Bay was founded in 1961, as "Save San Francisco Bay Association" by three East Bay women who were watching the Bay disappear before their eyes. Kay Kerr, Sylvia McLaughlin and Esther Gulick set out to stop the City of Berkeley’s plan to double in size by filling in the shallow Bay off-shore. They mobilized thousands of members to stop the project, and their resounding victory was repeated on Bay fill projects around the region.
Help celebrate one of our founding mothers at Save The Bay's Native Plant Nursery at the MLK Jr. Shoreline in Oakland! We'll be planting every plant this month in honor of her birth and enduring devotion to our national treasure; the San Francisco Bay. Volunteers are needed to help us reach our goal of planting 25,000 native plants this season.
