Volunteer to help Save the Bay Restoring the Wetlands-Feb 10th

We plant native plants that help protect and restore the shoreline, as well as pick up trash, learn about the Bay, and build relationships with our fellow congregants.

RSVP to Jody London at jodyl@earthlink.net

This will be the 17th year we’ve done this; it started when my daughter Bebe was in a baby backpack, and now she is a high school senior!
