This is our 4th year doing habitat restoration on this hillside, and we've made great progress. The little native plants that we've planted over the last two rainy seasons are off to a good start. The first year, which was very dry, we watered the new plants throughout the dry season, lugging water in recycled plastic containers up the steep path and hill. This year we're planning to expand the toe-hold of native plants into some planting sections at the start and top of the walking path, so that everyone walking by can see the difference. Come join us and make a difference!
