Science in the Park - October 1

Join the Alameda Creek Alliance on Saturday, October 1st from 9 am until 2 pm in Hayward for Alameda County's Science in the Park. Science in the Park is an opportunity for the family to learn more about topics in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This free event includes interactive and hands-on activities, live animal demonstrations, health screenings, environmental education, water rocket launches, and live entertainment.

This year's Science in the Park runs from 9 am to 2 pm at the Alden E. Oliver Sports Park (2580 Eden Park Way, Hayward). Look for the Alameda Creek Alliance booth and check out our display with information on local watersheds and watershed health.

Can you volunteer at the ACA table to help manage the fish-painting activity? We need a few volunteers to work 2.5-hour shifts (9-11:30am or 11:30am-2pm) helping kids with supplies as they paint fish. The work is fun and interactive, and you're welcome to spend the time painting fish of your own! Contact ralph@alamedacreek.org if you can help. Please indicate which time slot you can help.
