The Watershed Festival is a celebration of the San Leandro Creek Watershed and the many community efforts to preserve and protect the environment of the San Francisco Bay Area. Join us this Saturday, April 20, 10 am to 2 pm at the Cary Drive Property (behind the Bancroft Middle School field). This year the Festival will feature a free community recycling event. Bring broken or unwanted CDs, DVDs, jewel cases, floppy disks, audio and video tapes, cell phones, household batteries (no car batteries), empty ink toner cartridges, and mercury thermometers to recycle. Call (510) 577-6069 or visit www.fslc.org for more information.
The City of San Leandro will honor Earth Day 2013 by hosting or partnering on a number of springtime events. Residents can commemorate the occasion by learning about the City's recycling programs, attending the Watershed Festival, visiting local Bay Friendly Gardens, receiving locally made compost, participating in the annual Citywide Garage Sale, or joining Bike to Work Day. All of these events showcase San Leandro’s efforts at protecting the environment and serving the community.
