Planting Party

Want to get involved in helping to restore the Bluffs’ native plant communities? If you are a high school student, this is a great way to earn community service hours.

You are invited to join us at one of our weeding parties, held the first Saturday of each month. We meet at the Bailard Ave parking lot at 1 p.m. Be sure to bring water, sun protection, gloves, and shovels and clippers (if you have them). For more information, please contact Andrea at (805) 684-8077 or by email at carp_parks@yahoo.com.
