Did you know that it is safer for the environment to get your car washed at a commercial car wash instead of washing it in your driveway?

When those pollutants go into a storm drain they end up in our creeks and the bay without any filtration.

With Santa Clara County’s biggest police agency in the fold, the sobering station — a significant upgrade to the standard jail drunk tank — is expected to see a big jump in the number of people brought to the center to help them recuperate. “In six minutes or less officers can be back on the street keeping our communities safe by dropping off inebriated people at the sobering station. In addition, we will save thousands of dollars every year because we won’t be housing people unnecessarily in the county jail,” - Supervisor Cindy Chavez

A happy ending to a sad story. There’s good news to share on the coyote pups that were found and rescued by Calero Park staff back in April.

It was a very exciting moment for all involved to see the young coyotes frolicking in their new home!
