We are building a community authored plan for the future of one of the last remaining undeveloped headlands in the San Francisco Bay Area - Point Molate.
Our mission seeks to convert the former Navy fuel depot into a sustainable rejuvenation of important historical aspects of Pt. Molate with protection and restoration of its rare native species and supporting habitat.
A true 'people's' gathering place to enjoy the wonders of the SF Bay Area, celebrate and display local craft, fruits of the earth, as well as global cultural infusion, and a place for multiple generations to learn and develop tomorrow's sustaining technologies.

With funding from a grant from NOAA, Baykeeper is removing marine debris from the western shoreline of the San Pablo Peninsula, particularly in Pt. Molate. This project which targets drifted creosote infused pilings, has been underway since March, and work proceeds apace with over 350 drifted pilings identified at and near Pt. Molate Beach.
Baykeeper and CFSPM sponsored two volunteer work days on April 20, and May 11, 2013 in which pilings and marine debris were staged for final removal. During the week of June 17, a skip steer will be brought in to remove all of the mobilized pilings and timber from the beach staging sites to the parking lot.
