UC Berkeley Partnership Update

As part of the KIDS for the BAY Strawberry Creek Watershed Action Program, Berkeley Arts Magnet and Rosa Parks Elementary School students potted 45 native creekside plants, including Flowering Currant and Sticky Monkey Flower, in their classrooms. In January students will be planting these plants along Strawberry Creek on the UC Berkeley Campus in an effort to restore the creek. Third grader Zachary said to his plant, "You're going to grow big! See you at Strawberry Creek and take care little buddy!"

Hands-On Science in the Classroom

After building San Francisco Bay models in their first KIDS for the BAY Classroom Lesson, Hanna Ranch Elementary School third graders began to realize that their actions in their neighborhood affect the bay. One student reflected, “Trash could go from the creeks all the way out to the Pacific Ocean, and animals might eat it by mistake and get hurt.” Next Classroom Lesson, the students will be cleaning up trash on their school campus and in their neighborhood to prevent it from entering the storm drain system and flowing to the ocean.

Wildcat Creek Clean-Up is a Success!

KIDS for the BAY had a very productive 21st Annual Wildcat Creek Clean-Up at Davis Park in partnership with local schools and the City of San Pablo! Students and families from Dover Elementary School and St. Paul School helped pick up 270 gallons of trash from the creek. The mother of a Dover Elementary student said, "My daughter told me last night, 'Wake me up tomorrow morning. I want to go clean the creek so that the trash doesn’t go to the ocean!’”
