Lola Hockenberry gives a clean sweep at the Belvedere Community Park playground on April 23 — the day after Earth Day — as part of the Belvedere Community Foundation's third annual Clean and Green Day at locations across the city. 'The cleaning of this site is sponsored exclusively by Belvedere-Hawthorne Nursery School,' said Megan Marietti Heller, an organizer. 'The families of the school all come to this playground with their children to clean it up.' Over the weekend, volunteers helped the Richardson Bay Audubon Center and Sanctuary with weeding duties in separate events on Aramburu Island in Strawberry and at the center's native plant nursery in Tiburon. The California State Parks Foundation hosted its 18th annual Earth Day restoration and cleanup on Angel Island on April 16.

Though the District 3 seat represents all of Southern Marin, the Board of Supervisors has direct control over the county's unincorporated areas, which includes Strawberry and Paradise Cay.

Subsidized school bus passes to
go on sale
next week

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

Discounted school bus passes go on sale May 2 — but the two cities subsidizing the Yellow Bus Challenge still don't know how much they'll be on the hook for as they enter the second year of the pilot program, and the picture for future funding has gotten muddier.
The price of a one-way bus pass for Reed Union School District students for 2016-2107 has risen to $275, up from $215 for the current term, though that's still a considerable savings from the $430 that parents were paying each way before the program was launched.
