Duck Island volunteers needed

by Joyce Blueford

On Make a Difference Day, October 28, high school students will help lead the way, organizing activities to increase public awareness of flood control, storm-water pollution prevention, and other erosion and ecology problems. Interested students may contact Joyce Blueford at the number listed below.

Duck Island is located in Lake Elizabeth and managed by the city of Fremont. The island is one of the largest of San Francisco Bay's nesting habitats for heron and egret colonies. However, the nesting population has decreased dramatically due to erosion and loss of nesting trees.

Fremont's Environmental Services and Park and Recreation departments will be working with the Math Science Nucleus, California State University, East Bay, and Tri City Ecology on Oct. 28 to help make a difference. Volunteers will work on restoration at Stivers Lagoon and general trash pick up among other things.

If you are a high school student and would like to lend a hand, please contact Joyce Blueford at Math Science Nucleus at (510)790-6284 or by email at For more information, visit
