GO WILD with Native Plants August 11th at Malibu High School

 

On Tuesday, August 11, 2008 (exact time to be determined) the Resource Conservation District of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Malibu Boys and Girls Club will be putting native plants into a garden designed to improve water quality in Zuma Beach.  Come over to Malibu High School and help us get dirty!

 

Water quality expert Jamie Rinehart will speak to the kids.

 

This project has been funded by a grant from the State Water Resources Control Board via Proposition 50 and managed by the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission
The Nativescaping Teaching Garden at Malibu High School will improve water quality, restore native habitat, and provide an opportunity for our children to learn to grow native plants. 

 

The garden has been created by Sara Alexander at Rodriguez & Satterthwaite Design Build Landscape, a garden design firm located in Topanga, California. 

If you are interested in helping our kids to Go Wild with Native Plants, please contact our Project Manager, Irene Quinones at info@rcdsmm.org or 818.597.8627 x 101.
