The students and staff of Kehillah Jewish High School in Palo Alto recently spent the day working together on a habitat restoration service learning project in Half Moon Bay. The project focused on removing invasive, non-native plants. The marine terraces around Half Moon Bay were once entirely covered in native coastal scrub, but decades of coastal development and agricultural practices changed this landscape. Restoration creates habitat for the native plant species that are at the base of the food chain for coastal wildlife. Kehillah students and staff put on their gardening gloves, grabbed rakes and shovels, and helped restore this beautiful, natural coastline. Followed by some fun on the beach and the first of our weekly Kabbalat Shabbat (welcome the weekend) programming, hosted by Kehillah’s Student Government.
