CLIMATE ACTION: Education Center Workday with Our City Forest
California Climate Action Corps - Community Climate Action Day, a climate volunteer event and celebration hosted in collaboration with California Volunteers, HandsOn Bay Area, the City of San Jose, Veggielution, and other San Jose community organizations! As part of California Climate Action Week, hundreds of volunteers will support projects throughout the city focused on urban greening, organic waste and edible food recovery, and wildfire resiliency.
Volunteers will be building up the Education Center by doing maintenance, general upkeep of the site, removing invasive plants, and revamping their parcel at Martial Cottle Park. In the past year, over fifty trees have been planted at the 2-acre site near the intersection of Chynoweth Ave & Snell Ave. With speakers from the Santa Clara Office of Sustainability.

About California Climate Action Corps
In California, climate change is a threat to systems and people across the state. The impacts to our environment and health are worsening as we experience longer and more frequent droughts, devastating wildfires, and more. Each of us has a role to play. You can take meaningful action today to help communities across our state..
In 2020, as a part of California’s comprehensive strategy to address the climate crisis, California Volunteers, Office of the Governor, created the country’s first state-level climate service corps.
