If you love the bay — and if you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, chances are you do — you need to know: We have work to do. Rising seas, a warming climate and extreme weather threaten to damage our bay shores, flood our urban communities, harm wildlife, pollute waters and destroy recreational areas. But thanks to a consortium of 21 organizations that care about the bay, there are plans and strategies to protect our bay, beginning with a goal to restore 100,000 acres of baylands.
