"Follow Your Creek” is a program for students below I-580 in the Sausal Creek Watershed to learn about the physical and ecological connection of the creek and its watershed to the Oakland Estuary. The goal of this new program is to increase student awareness of the watershed, the shoreline, and the recreational opportunities in their neighborhoods, and to inspire them to become environmental stewards. Schools that fall under this program funding include Achieve Academy, ARISE High School, ASCEND Elementary School, Epic School, International Community School, Lazear Charter Academy, Think College Now, and Urban Promise Academy. If you are a teacher at any of these schools, please see below for a list of field trip options that fall under this programming (indicated by "Follow Your Creek" in the title). You are also welcome to request additional field trips above I-580 after your "Follow Your Creek" field trip(s) if you desire.
