A film by Ron Blatman and KQED Public Television. We will also be honoring Sylvia McLaughlin who died recently at 99 years of age. She was always a most gracious friend of our BFUU and her daughter and granddaughter were treasured and active members for some years in the 90's. So we are honoring her showing these two episodes which show how she was literally one of the miracle workers who in the 1960's who saved this beautiful and magical bay that every human inhabitant (the Miwoks and Ohlone) of the Bay has depended on. From the earliest inhabitants 5,000 years ago through the Gold Rush, the Mexican period, the Gold Rush, the Earthquake and Fire of 1906, to Silicon Valley, we all have needed this bay which drains a third of California. Now the Bay is one of the world's leading economic, academic, recreational and cultural regions. Narrated by Robert Redford, don't miss two of the four episodes of "Saving the Bay" which highlights an unforgettable journey around the waters of the Bay.
