LPS Oakland interns got an opportunity to participate at Leaf, our camping trip.

On November 2, 2017 Alhambra High Earth Team returned to San Pablo to monitor litter on Rumrill Blvd.  The interns focused solely on cigarette butt litter, collecting over one thousand butts.  Cigarette butt litter is known to carry heavy metals.  Storm water washes cigarette litter in the storm drains which lead to the local creeks and make their way to the Bay.  Heavy metals are polluting our Bay and it is the mission of Alhambra Earth Team to reduce the negative impacts of cigarette butt litter.
