Where & When
Matching Funds Goal Met!
Thanks to all who participated in our 'pop-up' pollinator plant sale last weekend. Your purchases helped us meet our fundraising goal of $3,000, which Scientist.com has generously offered to match. That means there a a lot more opportunities for pollinator parks in our community!
In fact, planning is underway for a new, half-acre public park on land fronting the Santa Fe Irrigation District's Larrick Reservoir on Glemont Drive at East Cliff Street. At the first of several planned community workshops, city officials pledged to include pollinator habitat in the landscape. Planning is likely to continue for about a year, so watch for additional opportunities to participate.
Meanwhile, we will install about 35 additional, native pollinators and milkweed at our Coastal Rail Trail community garden, the La Colonia Community Center pollinator garden, and at the native garden section of the Fire Station sculpture garden. Thanks again to the City of Solana Beach and the citizens Climate Action Commission for their partnership.
And huge thanks to Scientist.com!
