Last week, our SLZ interns made their way to Heron Bay in San Leandro to participate in a litter clean up by the shoreline. We were happy to be led by Amy Evans of the Alameda County Resource Conservation District, who gave us a brief history of the area then helped us pick up litter.
Heron Bay is a housing community and marshland situated at the end of Lewelling Blvd., only about 10 minutes from San Lorenzo High’s campus. There are beautiful walking paths that wind through the marshlands and near the shoreline and connect as part of the Bay Trail. As we walked along the path, students took note of wildlife in the area, including egrets and feral cats.
Join us for FOSC’s & Earth Team's annual Litter March, where we will work together to educate and inform the general public about the negative impacts of littering by engaging community members, students, and local organizations & businesses in a march to promote environmental awareness and reduce litter.
The Zero Litter Project takes a service learning approach to leverage the creativity, passion, and leadership of today’s youth toward a healthier watershed. Students partner with school districts, municipalities, local organizations, businesses, and concerned citizens to collect data and employ strategies that reduce litter sources, raise community awareness, and complete direct litter pick-ups to keep litter out of waterways.
