Bayview Hunters Point Eco-stewards Awarded $1M grant at Candlestick Point State Recreation Area
LEJ, in partnership with California State Parks (CSP), is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a $1M grant from the State’s Strategic Growth Council. This is a significant win for our organization and a testament to our strong partnership with CSP and the important work we are doing to engage local youth to learn about ecological restoration and create new habitats at California’s first urban state park, Candlestick Point State Recreation Area (CPSRA).
