Since its inception in the early 1990′s, FSLC has been constantly undertaking projects to help raise awareness of our natural resources.
One of the many projects FSLC is currently working on is a Creek Walk. This Green Way Walk will connect from Creek Side Plaza on San Leandro Blvd. across from the SL BART station, to Root Park at E.14th St. by City Hall. It will be open to communters, bikers, families, dog walkers and anyone who wants to enjoy the San Leandro Creek. Friends and the City of San Leandro is currently seeking funding for this exciting project.
Held 5-6 times a year, volunteers come together to help clean the creek and keep the Ecosystem healthy. For images of previous Creek Clean-Ups, please click here.
Earth Day/Watershed Awareness Festivals
Every spring, FSLC hosts a Watershed Awareness Festival. In 2016 the Earth Day/Watershed Fest will be held at Root Park on E 14th St in downtown San Leandro. It will be held on Saturday, April 9. We will begin the day with a creek walk and cleanup and the Fest will begin at 12:30 -4:00 PM. Stay tuned more details to come!
In the fall, we hold our Environmental Forum. This is when we have a panel of experts speak about a specific environmental issue. We begin the day with a Mini – Expo where local groups display information about the topic. We provide food and drinks. In 2016 it will take place on November 12 at the San Leandro Main Library.
“Nature’s Hidden Treasure,”
In 1998, FSLC painted one of the largest murals underneath the E. 14th Street bridge at Root Park. For more information about the mural, or to take a virtual tour, please click here.
