Supporting the Mission Creek Conservancy
Since its formation in 1983 by members of the Mission Creek Harbor Association, the Audubon Society, the Sierra Club, and other environmental activists, the Conservancy has relied on community volunteerism and philanthropy to preserve Mission Creek's environment and history.
The Mission Creek Conservancy is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization. Federal Tax ID: 94-2933983. The Conservancy graciously accepts tax-deductible donations via Paypal and will provide all donors with a written acknowledgement to the email address provided.
The Conservancy thanks The San Francisco Estuary Institute and San Francisco Beautiful for their support of its restoration efforts, and the generous donors that made the publications of Vanished Waters possible: Bob and Linda Mahley, Gladstone Institutes, City Lights Foundation, Eastern Neighborhoods Beautification Fund, Mission Creek Harbor Association, UCSF, the San Francisco Giants, the San Francisco Redevelopment Agency, Jerry & Toby Levine, and Carmen Mendieta. Thank you.
In Memoriam of a truly exceptional Community Leader: Corinne Woods
The Conservancy mourns the loss of one of its dedicated, tireless, and inspiring Board Members.
In lieu of flowers, Corinne's family is graciously accepting donations to the Mission Creek Conservancy to continue the preservation of the environment and the history of the place and community that Corinne called home.
Corinne Woods was a strong supporter of the Conservancy's publications of Vanished Waters: A History of San Francisco's Mission Bay. She is well-known in San Francisco for her thousands of hours of public advocacy to support the Mission Creek, Mission Bay, and San Francisco Waterfront communities. Here at Mission Creek, in addition to her impassioned advocacy work we are grateful for the countless hours of physical labor that she gave to support the restoration of Mission Creek's banks. These banks are fundamental for the local bird population.
The Chronicle's April 7th story includes several perspectives on Corinne's incredible life, which was thoughtfully acknowledged during the San Francisco Giants' Opening Day Game. Here is a video clip from the San Francisco Port Commission's April 9th meeting in honor of Corinne. UCSF acknowledged Corinne's contributions here.
