Last Saturday, a group of IXL volunteers helped an organization called Literacy for Environmental Justice (LEJ) with an ongoing ecological restoration project at Candlestick Point in San Francisco. The leaders of this project, the Candlestick Point Eco-Stewards, hope to restore the area and open up San Francisco’s second campsite. The campsite will focus on youth involvement and will feature activities like kayaking and paddle boarding.
