U.S. Representative Eric Swalwell (CA-15) is pleased to announce that the Bay Area organization Save The Bay has been awarded a $75,000 federal grant to help its goal to restore 25 acres of wetlands in the Eden Landing Ecological Reserve, Hayward. The grant was provided through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Migratory Bird Conservation Commission.
"Our Bay is central to whom we are in the East Bay and we must prioritize its protection so it is healthy for the people and wildlife that depend on it," said Swalwell. "I commend Save The Bay for this grant which will help them continue their environmental leadership and important work to restore wetlands in Eden Landing Ecological Reserve in Hayward."
This wildlife restoration project and others will help to replenish the bay ecosystem, provide recreation opportunities for residents and increase valuable habitat for endangered wildlife.
