San Pablo Families Clean Up 660 Pounds of Trash!
One early October morning, sixty-three volunteers came out to Wildcat Creek in San Pablo to help clean up trash from the creek bed! Together with KIDS for the BAY and the City of San Pablo, these dedicated volunteers cleaned up 660 pounds of trash, preventing that trash from becoming marine debris. The parent of a St. Paul School kindergarten student shared, "Our son came home from school and told us we had to come to this clean-up so that we could protect the creek and make sure trash doesn't end up in the ocean!" 

Thank you to the students and families from St. Paul School, Dover Elementary School, Helms Middle School, Middle College High School's Interact Club, and our partners from the City of San Pablo for your hard work!

Meet the 2016-2017 Strawberry Creek Student Interns!
We are excited to introduce our Student Interns for the Strawberry Creek Watershed Action Program this year! Rachel Hokanson (left) and Chloe Koslo (right) are both sophomores at UC Berkeley. Chloe shared, "I'm most excited to get more involved in the Bay Area community. I'm from a small town in Los Angeles County called Lake Hughes and restoration work really brought the community together, so I'm excited to see this community brought together through the Watershed Action Program!" Rachel added, "I'm excited to teach about the environment and be the spark in kids' lives that helps them want to make the world a better place."

UC Berkeley PhD candidate Dylan Chapple (middle) will be continuing in his role from last year as the restoration liason between KIDS for the BAY and UC Berkeley. The Strawberry Creek Watershed Action Program is partly funded by the UC Berkeley Chancellor's Community Partnership Fund.

Students bond during Community Building Field Trips
Fourth graders from Greenleaf Elementary School in Oakland were excited to spend the day outdoors bonding with their classmates! During their KIDS for the BAY Community Building Field Trip, they played team-building games that challenged them to develop their communication skills, reflect on their goals for this school year, and get to know each other better! One student, Jose, shared, "I'm really proud of my class, I think we worked well together." Fourth grade teacher Ms. Caitlin Wilson said, "I saw scholars working together to solve problems. I'm very proud!"

Go Green this Halloween!

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, over 30% of the municipal solid waste in the US is packaging. Candy wrappers are often made of mixed materials and cannot be curbside recycled. If you're handing out candy this Halloween, please consider choosing candy wrapped in aluminum foil (such as Hershey's Kisses) instead of plastic.
