Restoring East Bay Parks

Alameda Earth Team continues to work with East Bay Regional Park Staff (EBRPD) staff to help restore parks in their local community. For the last month interns have beeimg_6853n working rain or shine on Thursdays at Crown Memorial Beach helping EBRPD staff member, Ross Mitchell, turn the entrance into a drought tolerant native plant garden that will attract native pollinators and birds. It will help bring additional natural wonder to the already beautiful East Bay park located alongside the SF Bay. The park futures beautiful views of San Francisco, and plenty opportunities to observe wildlife.

Interns also still work Saturday field days helping EBRPD restore Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline into a restoration hotspot thriving with native and drought tolerant plant species!

“I learned how to properly plant trees and experienced outdoor field work for the first time”- Leilani LaBrie

“Planting the pine trees is super satisfying especially after the hard work digging holes. I think the idea that one day an entire park will have been built on top of a landfill with our help is great motivation” -Janne Bruhns
