4/27/10: The Bay Institute Dives into New Membership Campaign with Aquarium of the Bay

NOVATO, Calif., April 27-- The Bay Institute today launched its first-ever membership program, providing supporters with new opportunities to protect, restore and explore San Francisco Bay and its watershed, including up-close and personal experiences at its affiliate Aquarium of the Bay. The Bay Institute acquired San Francisco's only waterfront aquarium in June 2009, creating a perfect marriage between the similarly focused organizations, and providing opportunities for supporters' generosity to be felt from the Sierra to the sea.

Members of all levels will enjoy a wealth of benefits, including:

  • Complimentary year-round access to Aquarium of the Bay
  • Members-only special events
  • Free or discounted admission to over 100 zoos and aquariums nationwide
  • Discounts in Aquarium of the Bay's retail stores and on private event rentals
  • Free subscriptions to BayLetter and The Bay Institute's and Aquarium's enewsletters

A new members' lecture series on key issues related to The Bay Institute's main areas of focus—wetlands restoration, endangered species, rejuvenating tributary rivers and educating our next generation of environmental stewards—will also launch this summer.
