Representing the 15th District of California


Earth Day

Dear Friend,

On Earth Day, April 22, I donned waders to restore wetlands at Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Hayward. The new wetlands will recreate critical marsh habitats for birds and wildlife and is part of the 15,000-acre South Bay Salt Pond Restoration project, the largest tidal wetland restoration on the Pacific Coast.

This Bay restoration project will help us better protect our natural environment and ensure it is there for generations to come.

We must always ensure we are good stewards of our land, air, and water. As Ranking Member on the Science, Space and Technology Committee’s Subcommittee on Energy, I am working to encourage innovation in the field of renewable energy and address climate change, but our responsibility starts at home. In that spirit, on Saturday, I was pleased to join the San Lorenzo Homeowners Association and volunteers for San Lorenzo Cleanup Day.

As always, it is an honor to represent you in the U.S. Congress. Please contact my East Bay offices at 510-370-3322 or 925-460-5100 if you have any further questions or if we can be of service in any way. To stay in touch, please connect with me on Twitter @RepSwalwell and on Facebook. If you have not done so already, please sign up to continue receiving my e-newsletter.
