This small community in Contra Costa County is paving the way for sustainability. For example, they are one of only 20 communities that won a grant from CalRecycle to repair roads using rubber from upcycled tires that were diverted from landfills.
Moraga is home to St. Mary’s University, which is also a leader in sustainable efforts. The college has put plans in place that cover climate actions steps, environmental education classes, and aggressive campus and community engagement projects.
The Parks and Recreation Department has open positions for volunteers of all ages to get involved in their special “green” events throughout the year. The Town of Moraga website lists the most current activities where help is needed.
