The Half Moon Bay Coastside Foundation dba Save Our Bay and California Watershed Posse, founded in 1995, is organized under the California Non-profit 501(C)3 Public Benefit Corporation Law for charitable purposes.
We are dedicated to the advocacy of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary and a coalition member of the Water Quality Protection Program (WQPP) that endeavors to preserve and protect the 2.6 million Bay Area Water User's San Francisco Peninsula Watershed's Hetch Hetchy reservoirs, clean water, marine and watershed resources within its boundaries.
In the year 2000, Save Our Bay was invited by the California Fire Safe Council to become the first private sector community based non-profit organization to represent the San Francisco Peninsula "wildland areas" located entirely in the County of San Mateo.

The state is in the midst of one of the worst droughts in history with 1,000 more wildfires this year than last. In March 2015, NASA scientist proclaimed that "California's reservoirs have one year of water left!" In 2013 the largest wildfire ever in the Sierra Nevada, the Yosemite National Park Rim Fire, took two months to fully contain and seared more than 250,000 acres.
