Saving the Bay Cruise Benefit

Saving The Bay Cruise Benefit

OCSC has always and will always be committed to the conservation and protection of our natural environment, especially the San Francisco Bay. We’re proud to support our friends who have created Saving the Bay.

Saving the Bay, narrated by Robert Redford, is a lively and timely public television series about one of America’s greatest natural resources — San Francisco Bay. Being shot in HDTV for national broadcast, Saving the Bay consists of four one-hour episodes focusing on the geological, cultural, and developmental history of San Francisco Bay and the larger northern California watershed from the Sierra Nevada mountains to the Farallon Islands in the Pacific Ocean.

Conceived as more than purely a television series, Saving the Bay is a huge public education project designed to raise awareness about San Francisco Bay — its evolution, how we almost lost and then saved the Bay, and how we are planning the future of the Bay including wetland restoration, increased public access and balancing the often competing needs of a fragile ecosystem which is the centerpiece of a major urban area with over 7 million people.
