Planting Walgrove

Clockwise from Lu: Clare Carey, Ryan Drnek, Emiko Kuwata, Olivia Adams, and Zara Bennett

Saturday Dec. 7th in the rain I joined some enthusiastic volunteers exercising elbow grease to plant hundreds of native plants at the new Walgrove Wildands. This is what we hope to be the first of a series of Westside greening projects on school campuses. Walgrove Elementary is just downhill from Santa Monica Airport in Venice. Yes, the nursery bill was paid entirely by Santa Monica Bay Audubon funds! We, the pictured above, thank you, the children thank you, and soon, the birds will thank you for the land newly restored to habitat. Most exemplary behavior award goes to Ms. Olivia Adams, the principal of Walgrove who backs her administrative support of the project with enthusiastic hands-on elbow grease. Bravo to the whole crew of volunteers!

For an update on the Walgrove Wildlands, come to our February general meeting at C. Reed Park, Feb. 4, 2014  7:30PM.                   Lucien P.  Co-Chair, conservation
