A Compelling Documentary on our San Francisco Bay

Catch an excellent PBS series next week on efforts to protect our local natural treasure  

Save the Bay Cover San Francisco Bay is a cherished natural treasure that defines our quality of life here in the Bay Area.


I feel privileged to be able to work with others to improve our Bay. 


As Vice-Chair of the San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority (San Francisco Bay Restoration Authority), I'm working with dedicated environmentalists and civic leaders to help develop sustainable funding for Bay wetland restoration and water quality improvement.


As a Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) member for the last 14 years, I've helped increase public access to the Bay.


I've also sponsored annual efforts to clean our Bay shoreline, and help teach young people the value of environmental stewardship.


We all have a responsibility to understand how we can do our part to protect and improve this natural resource and treasure.


I encourage you to watch a special rebroadcast of the PBS documentary "Saving the Bay" on KQED Channel 9 during the week of June 2- 6.


The movie, narrated by Robert Redford, covers the Bay's natural and political history, up to today's efforts to help it thrive.
