Save Newark Wetlands
The Citizens Committee to Complete the Refuge is promoting a new short film profiling the region-wide efforts to protect and restore Newark Area 4 via the “Save Newark Wetlands” campaign.
The film is called “Bay Rising: Voices for Newark Area 4,” crafted by videographer Mark Weaver, and features interviews with long-time wetlands advocate Florence La Riviere, Greenbelt Alliance’s Zoe Siegel, coastal ecologist Peter Baye, and CCCR advocate and Newark resident Jana Sokale. You can watch the full 7-minute film below.
When we are young, we think the whole world revolves around us – that is Ego Centric. As we grow, we connect with people who share our same religion or traditions – that is Ethno Centric. When we expand that connection to care about everyone on the planet – that is WORLD CENTRIC.”- American Philosopher Ken WilberThis bit of wisdom is from the Mission Statement of World Centric, an environmentally conscious organization that creates compostable foodservice and packaging products. We are thankful that World Centric has again agreed to donate the cups, lids and straws that we will use in our Lemonade Stand Fundraiser at the Fremont Festival of the Arts this year (September 25 & 26, 2021).
