"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
HAYWARD-Join a series of community conversations about how Hayward histories shape our lives today. Each conversation will feature individuals who made history through sustained local action and community work.
Between 1970 and 1990, a remarkable collaboration between citizens and government accomplished one of the most complex environmental restoration projects in history. This collaboration regained the public’s access to the Hayward Shoreline and preserved a unique ecology. This work also generated crucial new knowledge. Educators at Cal State East Bay and Hayward’s K-12 public schools created sophisticated inquiry-based science curricula, engaging students in research. This collaborative work is historically significant and unique to Hayward.
