Who We Are

For 25 years, Citizens for a Healthy Bay has brought people together to achieve a clean and healthy Commencement Bay that benefits both our community and the surrounding ecosystem that calls Puget Sound home. Our work is driven by a passion for the natural environment and our community; by a steadfast commitment to good science, strategic action and organizational excellence; and by a conviction that together we can accomplish more.

What We Do

Our goal as a Tacoma-based environmental nonprofit is to engage people to clean up, restore and protect Commencement Bay, its surrounding waters and natural habitat. We work closely with county and local government agencies, members of the community, businesses, and other nonprofit organizations to serve as an unbiased positive voice for the health and welfare of Commencement Bay and south Puget Sound.

OUR WORK

Bay Patrol

As the only environmental organization with a patrol vessel in the South Sound, we have the unique ability to safeguard local waters and quickly tackle pollution that would have otherwise gone unnoticed or unchecked.

Superfund Cleanups

The very core of our work is mobilizing the community to push for the effective cleanup of toxic contamination in and around Commencement Bay. While there is no doubt the bay is cleaner today than ever before, there is still much work to be done.

Climate Change

Climate change isn’t just a fact, it’s the reality we are facing today. To stop it, we need to drastically reduce the amount of pollution we create. That’s why we’re working to place a temporary freeze on future fossil fuel facilities and expansions in the Tacoma Tideflats.

Education

To achieve a cleaner future, we’re working closely with local classrooms to empower the next generation of environmental stewards through youth education efforts like our Student Stewards Conservation Program.
