County Nursery Restoration Update

The County Campus Foothill Open Space has "grown up” since planting in 2004. We now have near-total plant native cover that’s hosting birds and wildlife while providing a great place to take a walk.  Since receiving the SWANA (Solid Waste Association Of North America) award in 2008 the site has only gotten better.  We appreciate county’s staff innovative management of the site and the hundreds of volunteers who worked with us to prep, schlep and plant. Currently we are focusing on the entrance road to the Hearts Therapeutic Riding Club. Over the last 12 months we have planted over 20 native trees and 500 native plants that will fill in and provide soil stabilization, pollinator habitat and a fragrant visual feast for those who appreciate native Southern California flora.
