Dear Friends,

to restore wetlands and provide alternative sources of

The foundational premise of The Bay Institute’s work is that San Francisco Bay and all of
its watersheds, large and small, are a single integrated ecosystem. Protection, restoration
and inspired stewardship of this vital environmental resource must cross geographic
and disciplinary boundaries, address all of the diverse challenges facing the estuary and
watershed, and engage all elements of society—government, scientists, conservationists,
educators, students and communities—to work together.
                 BAY RESTORATION
    San Francisco Bay has lost more than 85% of its original tidal marshes,
 essential ecosystems that nourish the estuary and protect the Bay’s shoreline
   from flooding and erosion. The Bay Institute’s Bay Restoration Program
  builds public support and assembles partnerships of government agencies,
         funders, nonprofits and local communities for restoration of
                             these lost Baylands.
