Volunteers install weed-blocking landscape fabric

Fifteen members of the California Conservation Corps spent “Volunteer Day” — Saturday, October 19 — working to prep the grounds at Phoebe Hearst Elementary School for a large native plant garden.

Phoebe Hearst received a grant last spring from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Department to transform a large, unused area on campus into an extension of the school’s outdoor learning area with a variety of native plants which will attract insects and birds.

The native garden should be planted within the next few weeks by students and parent volunteers.
