Meet Our Peninsula Based Community Partners!

Meet Our Peninsula Based Community Partners!

We are delighted to have so many amazing community partners joining our Bay Day Celebration. This includes our Signature Event Partners who will be joining us for RestorationFest @ the Palo Alto Baylands – Thank you!

We work together throughout the year to keep our Bay healthy and vibrant for future generations, so it is only natural for us to join together for the Bay Day. Here are just a few of the activities these Bay Heroes are sharing on Bay Day, Oct. 5, 2019, at RestorationFest:

Environmental Volunteers
Join this crew for an Ocean Exploration – Livestream and Interview

The exploration vessel Nautilus is traveling through the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean, and will be right off the coast of the San Francisco Bay on October 5. Participants will view live-streamed footage from the remotely operated vehicles on the ocean floor, and have the exclusive opportunity to participate in a real-time interview with the scientists aboard the vessel. Anyone can ask questions – this is your chance to learn more about ocean exploration directly from the explorers!

The first hour (10 to 11 am) will be a showing of live-streamed footage from the vessel, shown on the large screened TV at the EcoCenter, and from 11:00 to 11:30 am, they will host the Q and A interview.

Lucy Evans
Get Ready for a Nature Walk at 10:00 a.m.

Bay Day attendees will explore with City of Palo Alto Naturalist, Corinne C. DeBra. The walk will start and end at the Lucy Evans Baylands Nature Interpretive Center. There will be a special visitor at the end of the journey: Sequoia the Bald Eagle. This is a free walk, but registration required in advance. And don’t forget to stop by their center to take a walk on their marsh boardwalk.

Palo Alto Waste Water Treatment Center
Get the Scoop on Poop

You’ll get a sneak peek behind-the-scenes of the City of Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant. See how 99 percent of biological pollutants are removed from 20 million gallons of our region’s wastewater every day before it’s released to the San Francisco Bay. Closed-toe shoes are required, and a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a light jacket are recommended as much of the tour is outside. Children must be 11 years or older. This is a free walk, but registration is required in advance. To register email with your name, the number of people in your group, your phone number, and email address.

Special thanks to the Palo Alto Rangers and the City of Palo Alto who help make this event possible!
