Redwood Shores Levee Cleanup 2015

At the end of each August, your Redwood Shores Community Association has sponsored our Annual Levee Cleanup. To benefit the environment, the community bonds together to help beautify the nearly seven miles (yes, 7 miles!) of levee surrounding the Shores. And we need all the help we can get to cover those seven miles..

Date: Saturday, August 22
Time: 8:00 am til 12:30
Place: Mariner Park, Redwood Shores, CA 94065
(click here for a MAP)
Starters: Coffee, juice and bagels served at 8:00 am
Lunch: Barbeque for all hands at 11:30am
Crews: Qualifies as 4-hours of Community Service

In addition, this year we welcome everybody to attend a special event: the dedication of a park bench in memory of Pete Hughes, former RSCA Board Member and Redwood Shores Resident. Dedication will be held at 12:30pm.

The Shores Levee Cleanup is a fun community event. Residents and admirers of our beautiful Shores are all invited to join us in this very worthy annual event to help keep this neighborhood and wetland area clean. Volunteers will be assembled into teams and assigned cleanup areas.  Kids and parents, adults and seniors are all welcome and encouraged to get involved.  Family work groups handle their areas at their own pace; all help to keep these bountiful nature trails debris-free.

This is a great opportunity for Redwood City residents (and their friends) to enjoy a beautiful summer morning while experiencing a variety of birds and other wildlife. Volunteer and enjoy the splendor of our seven miles of shoreline, including incredible views of the bay.

We hope you will join us again this year for this worthy cause and opportunity to give back to your community. Please wear good walking shoes and consider bringing gloves; all pickup tools and trash bags will be provided.  Take pride in enhancing this important Redwood City resource, and join us Saturday, August 22, starting at 8am.

Breakfast and lunch is on us! As a small ‘thank you’ to our volunteers, a barbeque is sponsored by our friends at the San Mateo Credit Union for all hands.  Barbeque will be served at 11:30am in Mariner Park.

  

Recology Systems Inc. provides the trash collection containers, and their assistance is gratefully acknowledged. Each year large amounts of trash are picked from the Redwood Shores Levee environment by our volunteers and removed by Recology Systems free of charge.  Every piece of trash that is eliminated is important!

For more information about this event, please contact Nina Boire at  .  

To acknowledge his faithful community service and leadership, this year’s cleanup is again dedicated to Pete Hughes. Pete organized this valued community initiative from the beginning and gained the continuing support of civic, business, and community leaders who support this public effort with their time and resources.

Sounds of the Shores 2015

The concert series hits that final note — come out Sunday, August 9th and party in the Shores!

Sundays this Summer, Marlin Park is the place to party! Join your friends and neighbors for the Redwood Shores summer concert series.

Hosted by RSCA, the Sounds of the Shores summer concert series takes place once a month throughout the summer on Sunday afternoons. RSCA has moved our Sounds of the Shores summer concert series this year to the afternoons, 5 – 7pm, in Marlin Park. We expect more people to be able to join us on Sundays, and the earlier time should help avoid the early evening chill that can cool things off as the sun goes down.

Silicon Valley Clean Water Project Construction in June

SVCW

A project to rehabilitate the existing biosolids drying beds at Silicon Valley Clean Water’s treatment plant at 1400 Radio Road is nearing completion and will require cement trucks traversing Redwood Shores Parkway for three days in June, all concentrated between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. for their roundtrips. The current schedule, which may change as construction conditions change, is:

  • 6/11 – Thirty-five (35) trucks
  • 6/17 – Fifty-five (55) trucks
  • 6/22 – Fifty-five (55) trucks

The project has significant environmental benefits by lining the beds and by making the drying process much more efficient. The work includes lime stabilization of the existing soil base, a new concrete floor and access ramps, internal roadway improvements, and a new decant system and pump station. The overall drying bed area is not increasing.

In the long term, the improvements will reduce the number of trucks leaving the SVCW site annually from about 600 to about 300 and significantly reduce biosolids disposal costs.

If you hear the sounds of a tiny armada flying over the Shores, don’t be afraid — that’s the sound of the Hiller Aviation Museum’s “The Biggest Little Air Show”, a special event celebrating and showcasing model aircraft. The event runs from 10AM to 1PM.

Please note that, during air events at the Hiller Aviation Museum, roads into and around San Carlos Airport may be affected, and residents may hear unusual noises during the daytime events. 

The following description and video will give more information on the event, as it is described on the Hiller Aviation Museum website. 

 

Join the festivities as the Biggest Little Air Show matches a thrilling aerobatic performance by airshow pilot Vicky Benzing and her full-sized 1940 Boeing Stearman along with demonstrations of exceptional radio controlled models from the Baylands RC Flyers group.  San Carlos Airport will close to regular traffic from 10:30 am to noon to allow realistic jet- and propeller-powered model aircraft to roll down the runway and into the sky to take their part in a unique aerial extravaganza including aerobatic helicopters, computer controlled DRONES, quadrotors, high performance model rockets and more!!
