Bay Nature offers several opportunities for you to access a large and growing number of nature-oriented residents of the Bay Area while at the same time supporting the organization’s important work.

Bay Nature’s EXPLORE

The EXPLORE section of Bay Nature magazine showcases the lands and stories important to our partners and that help readers get out and engage with the Bay Area’s incredible natural world. These stories are sponsored by our partners and co-created with Bay Nature’s editorial staff.  All sponsored EXPLORE content is clearly marked as paid for, and the stories meet multiple needs:

  • Help readers discover the public and private lands around them.
  • Support regional agencies and organizations by raising awareness, connection, and excitement about parks, open space, and activities that people can enjoy.
  • Ensure Bay Nature can continue to produce top-notch stories.
