Nestlé in the U.S. is hosting #NestleCares, a national day of volunteering across Nestlé’s 120 U.S. hometowns. SCA is proud to be a partner in this endeavor by facilitating opportunities for Nestlé in the U.S. employees, families, and friends to engage in team-based service projects in 9 different cities. These projects will focus on some of the most urgent conservation needs including pollinator habitat restoration and water conservation.

Managed by the Friends of Sausal Creek, Bridgeview Trail winds along Sausal Creek through highly biodiverse habitat, including redwood groves. Nestlé USA and Nestlé Waters employees will join SCA volunteers in Oakland to preserve this local trail and its surrounding green space for future generations to enjoy.

WHERE: Bridgeview Trailhead, Monterey Blvd, Oakland, CA 94602.

Kickoff location will be just beyond the trailhead within the grove.

WHAT: Volunteers will help to restore the trail and protect native habitat by removing invasive vines that threaten this important riparian ecosystem. Projects will be appropriate for all ages and abilities. 

BRING WITH YOU: Please wear long pants and closed-toe shoes.

PROVIDED: SCA will provide breakfast and lunch along with work gloves, safety gear, and all project materials. Reusable water bottles will be provided along with water stations. Stay hydrated!
