Bay Nature connects the people of the San Francisco Bay Area to our natural world and motivates people to solve problems with nature in mind. Our vision is that all people have a close relationship with their natural world.

We are an independent nonprofit publication and website with a vision that all people have a close relationship with nature. Our writers, photographers and artists cover science and nature, conservation, and recreation. Our flagship is the award-winning Bay Nature magazine, which reaches 24,000 readers each quarter.

In addition to publishing the magazine and website, every year the Bay Nature Institute honors the contributions of local environmental leaders at our annual Local Hero Awards. Bay Nature Institute also organizes naturalist-led hikes to places featured in the magazine, produces a free community event calendar, and hosts live educational events.
