The San Francisco Estuary Partnership (SFEP) is a collaboration of local, state, and federal agencies, NGOs, academia and business leaders working to protect and restore the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary. The Estuary Partnership – which is hosted by ABAG and staffed by MTC – is guided by the development and implementation of the Estuary Blueprint, a comprehensive, collective vision for the Estuary’s future.

The Estuary Partnership has a quarterly newsletter which allows readers to follow progress on implementation of the Blueprint. Of particular note in the latest newsletter is the joint effort between the SFEP and the Water Trail Program at ABAG to publish five maps of the San Francisco Bay Area Water Trail:

Kayakers, canoers, and other non-motorized boat enthusiasts around the San Francisco Estuary can now have essential information at their fingertips with the publication of five San Francisco Bay Area Water Trail maps. These full-color, waterproof maps provide the information non-motorized boaters need for a fun, safe, and environmentally friendly day of adventure on the Bay. The maps cover five areas around the Bay and Suisun Marsh: North San Pablo Bay, North Central SF Bay, South Central SF Bay, South SF Bay, and Suisun Marsh.

The Water Trail is an exciting collaboration between the State Coastal Conservancy, ABAG, the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission and the California State Parks, Division of Boating and Waterways to build a network of designated launching and landing sites, or “trailheads,” around San Francisco Bay. Each trailhead enables non-motorized small boat users to enjoy the historic, scenic, cultural, and environmental richness of San Francisco Bay and its nearby tributary waters.
