Event Description: 

Join Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) on a work day and help with the restoration of Candlestick Point and other special projects. Volunteers will grow native plant stock. At the end of the project there will be a potluck BBQ. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, but please bring something to share with the group.

Candlestick Point Eco-stewards is a project of Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) that works to cultivate the next generation of community leaders in SF's Bayview-Hunter's Point neighborhood. Bayview-Hunter's Point youth participate in a paid green-collar internship focusing on environmental education, community-based ecological restoration, civic activism, and good old-fashioned hard work in Bayview's expanding green spaces.
