Saturday, Oct. 9 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 join the Ballona Creek Renaissance volunteers planting next to the Ballona Creek bike path. Roll up your sleeves and make Culver City pretty- ok, just prettier.. The bike path section being beautified this time will be right on the Culver City Middle/High School Campus at 4601 Elenda St., Culver City, CA (Enter from Huron Ave. gate off Braddock Dr. or from Farragut Ave./Elenda St. parking lot. The bike path gate at the pedestrian bridge also might be open.
CCHS/CCMS students are especially encouraged to participate, but all are welcome–students, parents, and community members! This is a fun and healthy way to learn, restore ( and earn your service credits) Spread the word and RSVP. We want to know you will be there.
All this is planed to be part of the emerging Ballona Greenway, and this project is funded by a grant from the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Foundation. Led by Ballona Creek Renaissance, the project is endorsed by CCUSD and the CA Native Plant Society.
In addition adding more plants, we’ll also be doing garden care/repair tasks, mulching, and some erosion control and irrigation system alterations. In addition to learning hands-on and getting healthy exercise, you can help to create a more sustainable garden that helps restore a bit of the Ballona Creek ecosystem for both the community and environment.
Please RSVP by return email or via our event page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/jim.lamm) to help match the volunteers with the work to be done.
Things you can bring: garden tools (hand tools, shovels, buckets, etc.), gloves, hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes. We will provide materials, instruction, water, light refreshments, and some tools.
