Students from Kennedy High School in Fremont, advice CA were featured in a recent CBS 5 news report for their participation in a shoreline service-learning restoration project with Save the Bay. Kennedy has established a Green Tech Career Pathway and the project represented an opportunity for students to gain hands on experience working environmental restoration. Kennedy also included a class of English Learners in the service-learning project to provide a contextualized opportunity for students to learn and practice language skills.
Save the Bay hosted the service-learning project at Eden Landing in Hayward California as part of their initiative to reclaim and restore former salt ponds back to productive wetland habitats.

The Service-Learning Waste Reduction Project is partnering with Save the Bay to help students understand how litter flows into and impacts the bay by encouraging students to participate in service-learning projects promoting bay health.
