Restoration Chronicles: Earth Day At The Castro Valley Creek Trail!

Another year in the books at the Castro Valley Creek Trail during Earth Day!

Interns from Castro Valley, Arroyo, San Lorenzo and Skyline High School helped lead a huge effort towards restoring The Castro Valley Creek Trail on Earth Day. With the combined effort of all four schools and along with members of the community joining in, we have achieved a huge feat in restoring the creek trail even further. There were many activities throughout the day and many of which are equally labor intensive. We appreciate the community as well as our interns to help lead this large undertaking. Thank you to Bruce King and Dr. Ann Maris from Friends of San Lorenzo Creek and Jennifer Trevis from the Alameda County Resource Conservation District Clean Water Program in hosting this event year round!

During the first phase of the event, interns and the community weeded a large area. It eventually laid the ground work to have fresh mulch spread over this area. The process was long and effort was not short of fantastic, all participants brought buckets and wheelbarrows of mulch to this area.

During the second and final phase, we have our lovely native plant expert, Steve showing our interns how to install plants into the ground with a well done demo.

Thank you to all of the community members coming out and showing their support of Earth Day and spending their time doing some amazing work! Special thank you to Jennifer Trevis, Ann Maris, Bruce King, and supporting staff for hosting this wonderful event!
