We’re a volunteer-driven community of Earth Heroes inspired by kindred spirit and collective passion for protecting and preserving our ocean, beaches, creeks, wildlife and native habitat. Together, we're growing as a powerful force for positive change recognized as a community-centered model leading sustainable environmental stewardship among all ages through advocacy, education, community building and citizen action in the Bay Area.
You too can lead positive change! Throughout the year, we host field and education programs connecting thousands who care for our environment. You can clean a beach, restore habitat, advocate, become a member, organize events, donate, join a committee, become a student liaison, lend your skills, share your talent … all while learning more about protecting our coastal environment.
Learn more about us, our Earth Heroes and how we achieve our mission throughout the pages of our new website!
