Washington Manor Resilience Hub Interest Form

The Washington Manor Neighborhood Resilience Hub is looking to seek input on programming ideas and needs within the community. The Resilience Hubs Initiative was created in response to the urgent need to build resilience in our homes and communities in the wake of the climate crisis and social injustice. From recreation centers to housing complexes, resilience hubs are trusted community centers and spaces that serve as a gathering place to distribute resources, exchange information, and express community care during disasters; while supporting community programming and climate solutions year-round.

The Washington Manor neighborhood extends between Wicks Blvd on the west side, the 880 highway on the east side, the City of San Leandro border at San Lorenzo Creek to the south, and along the canal on the north side. For a more detailed map, see geosl.org

Form responses will help shape the development of programming for the resilience hub and neighborhood. The steering committee of residents will review answers and develop potential programming. Feel free to leave your contact information if you wish to participate in the committee, which meets at the Manor Library bimonthly. Program supported by the City of San Leandro Resilience Hubs Initiative.

Adopt-A-Drain Season Begins!

Help San Leandro keep drains clean and avoid localized flooding! San Leandro has approximately 2,200 storm drain inlets that can become clogged with litter and leaf debris throughout the year. This can lead to localized flooding during the rainy season, and also contamination of San Leandro Creek and the San Francisco Bay. San Leandro residents and businesses can help the City and their neighborhoods prepare for rainstorms by adopting one or more drains near their home or business. It doesn't take much to keep a storm drain clear. A monthly commitment to check the drain and remove the debris on top goes a long way in helping Public Works maintain the drains to reduce flooding and prevent pollution of our waterways.

Sign up here to adopt a drain and get a free tool: https://www.sanleandro.org/adoptadrain

A raffle prize will be sent to randomly selected volunteers in the Adopt A Drain program at the end of the storm season in the late spring.

Over 20 people attended the DIY air filter build on Sun Sept 24 at the San Leandro Main Library hosted by the Educators Collective for Environmental Justice and supported by the San Leandro Resilience Hubs Initiative. Community members learned the importance of air filters for protecting health and improving indoor air quality during wildfire smoke days, and were able to build 10 air filters to take home. More information about the Corsi-Rosenthal box can be found here: https://engineering.ucdavis.edu/news/science-action-how-build-corsi-rosenthal-box. This is the second workshop in the series about air quality. Next month’s workshop on Oct 15 will focus on indoor and outdoor air quality monitoring.

US National Weather Service San Francisco/Monterey Region advises that the smoke from Northwest California fires may be present for the next few days. Below is a screenshot from Purple Air of the current air quality levels. You can monitor the live air quality levels at https://www.sanleandro.org/854/Air-Quality-Monitoring

Alameda County Public Health Department has guidance below for staying safe during smoky days:

Prevention

Bay Area residents impacted by wildfire smoke are advised by the Alameda County Public Health Department to:

Stay indoors with windows and doors closed, where air quality is better.
Keep indoor air cool or visit an air-cooling center.
Set home and car ventilation systems on re-circulate to prevent drawing in outside air.
Stay hydrated by drinking water.
Limit or avoid outdoor recreational and sports activities.
Use an air filter, especially if there are household members with heart disease, asthma or other respiratory conditions, or elderly persons and children.
Avoid using wood-burning stoves or fireplaces, lawn mowing, leaf blowing, burning candles and incense, barbecuing, smoking.
If possible, leave the affected area for the duration of a heavy smoke event.

Located below the Monarch Butterfly Migration Mural in downtown San Leandro, the Butterfly Garden reminds visitors that we live right on the Monarch's western migration path. Like all pollinators, the Monarch depends on California native nectar plants to feed and host plants to lay its eggs on. Learn about these plants at the garden, including showy and narrow-leaf milkw**d, bush monekyflower, buckwheat, coffeeberry and coyote mint, among many others. The garden was installed in 2016 by Lary Huls with support from the City of San Leandro and the San Leandro Kiwanis Club, and depends on volunteers like you for upkeep.
