Native Plant Landscaping at Rancho Jamul Ecological Reserve: January 21,2012

January 21,2012, 9am-1pm
Native Plant Landscaping at Rancho Jamul Ecological Reserve

Help the California Department of Fish and Game with landscaping
at the budding Conservation Education Center at Rancho Jamul Ecological
Reserve. To demonstrate water-wise and habitat friendly practices, the entrance
area of the facility will be transformed from lawn and water-hungry ornamental
plants, to native plants with several interpretive features such as plants used
by native Americans, a wildlife ‘tracking pond,’ and an information kiosk. This
work day will consist of planting, mulching and irrigation installation. Wear
long pants, a hat, gloves (if you have them) and sturdy shoes. Bring sunscreen
or rain protection, as the weather indicates. Bring water and a water bottle if
you have one. Water, snacks and tools will be provided. We are happy to sign
for community service or extra credit hours. To RSVP, and for directions or
more information, contact Cathy Chadwick, chadgroup@cox.net or 619-277-3605.

This project is being conducted with support from the US Fish and Wildlife
Service Schoolyard Habitats program.
