Best of Blue Dot: Hunter Pence's all-star efforts for a better Bay Area: The Healthy Planet Project and San Francisco Baykeeper
Host Dave Schlom visits with two-time World Series champion and four-time MLB All-Star Hunter Pence about the nonprofit organization he and his wife Alexis have founded: Healthy Planet Project.
With a variety of partners, Pence, and his team are dedicated to community engagement and youth activation on behalf of the environment. From cleaning up beaches and planting trees in community spaces to kayaking clean up along the coast, the Healthy Planet Project brings people together to make the Bay a better place.
Dave talks to Hunter (now a baseball analyst for the SF Giants on radio and television) about his passion for the environment. San Francisco Baykeeper Executive Director Sejal Choksi-Chugh joins us to discuss the pollution challenges facing the bay and how Baykeeper fights it.
And at the end, Hunter and one of the Healthy Planet Project's young volunteers, Salinas High School student and baseball player Dominic Marci talk about their experiences together in this engaging episode of Blue Dot.
