    *About Center for Ecoliteracy (CEL):
    * CEL <http://www.ecoliteracy.org/about-us/vision-and-mission>
     supports and advances education for sustainable living. We believe
    that schools play a pivotal role in moving us beyond our growing
    environmental crises and toward a sustainable society. We recognize
    schooling for sustainability as a process that fosters abundant
    living on a finite planet and makes teaching and learning come
    alive. We bring a passion to our work that stems from our conviction
    that the best hope for learning to live sustainably lies in
    schooling that returns to the real basics: engaging with the natural
    world; understanding how nature sustains life; nurturing healthy
    communities; exploring the consequences of how we feed and provision
    ourselves; caring about the places where we live and the people and
    creatures in them.We are inspired by the growing movement of
    educators, parents, and community members who embrace this vision.
    * About The Bay Institute:
    * The Bay Institute <http://www.bay.org/about-us/mission>  was
    founded in 1981 by pioneers of a new advocacy approach which viewed
    the entire Bay-Delta ecosystem as a single, interdependent
    watershed. They claimed that environmental reform benefiting the Bay
    must recognize the importance of events in the farthest reaches of
    the watershed just as urgently as those along the Bay shoreline, and
    that reduced freshwater flow was the biggest factor in the decline
    of the estuary's fish and wildlife resources. Our mission is to
    protect, restore and inspire conservation of San Francisco Bay and
    its watershed from the Sierra to the sea.
    *About San Francisco Film Makers Collaborative:
    * San Francisco Film Makers Collaborative
    <http://www.filmmakerscollaborative.org/>  mission is to produce
    innovative films and public information campaigns that foster
    education, awareness, and civic participation to help create a more
