On a gorgeous December morning, alongside the Bay, we proudly unveiled our newest habitat restoration project during our second annual Solstice on the Shoreline, a special “behind-the-scenes” experience for our long-time supporters and friends.

It’s also an opportunity for our loyal donors to see their gifts in action and to truly know they are protecting …


“Is this legit? Really? Is this all… kosher?” Like any gifted scientist, Jeff Sandler views great results with even greater skepticism. He’d won our Alaska Airlines prize after making his first-ever $250 donation to Save The Bay? A local teacher who regularly brings students to our SEED programs?

“David Lewis is a pioneer of our environment…” San Francisco Mayor London Breed “David Lewis has the tenacity, political savvy, and passion that leads to progress…” San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo “David Lewis wouldn’t give up until he got every last vote…” Felicia Madsen, Save The Bay Action Fund Board Director These are just a few of the accolades that were shared about David Lewis, who last week celebrated his 20th anniversary as Executive Director of Save The Bay, at Delancey Street Foundation in San Francisco.
