One of the newest East Bay Parks is Oyster Bay, an old garbage dump turned shoreline park. Arroyo High School’s Earth Team recently partnered with East Bay Regional Parks to clean up the site and make it a beautiful native landscape for humans and wildlife to enjoy.
Working with interns from Skyline High’s Earth Team, the Arroyo interns removed invasive species from newly planted areas of the park. This will help these young native plants grow and thrive in this new landscape.
Interns also mulched several trees that were planted by Earth Team groups in the last few years, deepening Earth Team’s legacy of hard work at Oyster Bay. The interns got to see growth on these previously planted trees and understand that their work is transforming this park.
Arroyo High School is one of Earth Team’s newest programs, so it was great for the interns to see the work that we have been doing for the past few years. They will now move through this program year with a new focus on the impact their work can have. Lots of work and fun times ahead for Arroyo High’s Earth Team!
