The San Francisco Bay Joint Venture is the largest Bay Area partnership devoted to protecting wetland habitats for people and wildlife. Nobody can protect our wetland resources alone. The SF Bay Joint Venture brings together key Bay Area vested interests and helps them work towards a common goal.
You are one of our most important partners and we want to help you get involved in the protection of wetlands and be empowered to know how you can make a difference too!
Ninety percent of the wetlands remaining in CA are found here in the Bay Area! Wetlands provide vital wildlife habitat, protect shorelines, cleanse pollutants, buffer the impacts of floodwaters and offer a wealth of public recreation opportunities.
