Our Board of Directors oversees the operations of The Bay Foundation (TBF). TBF’s Board of Directors meets several times a year and its meetings are currently open to the public.

Laurie Newman

President

I joined TBF’s Board of Directors because I understand its unique role as the hub of science and policy for this region. Working collaboratively with the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission, and many excellent and thoughtful leaders, The Bay Foundation has the distinction of overseeing and implementing the Bay Restoration Plan.

TBF continues to provide leadership, technical expertise, hands-on research, integrated planning, and restoration activities to achieve our environmental goals. With an impeccable track record, TBF is broadening its support and building new relationships that will allow us to increase our successes.

Please think about what the environmental health of the region means to you, and to all residents, visitors, schools, and businesses that make up our community. If you’re like me, you value clean air and water, open space and parks, and initiatives that sustain our economy and environment. Please join me in support of The Bay Foundation’s work with a tax-deductible gift today. Thank you.”
