This month SPAWN has started to restore its Lagunitas House property. We have been working every weekend this month to remove invasive hypericum(St. Johns Wart), vinca, ivy, and forget-me-nots to free up the under-story for native plantings. This long dry summer has been hard on our existing plantings around the valley, so the Americorps WSP interns have been working hard every Wednesday to water our restoration sites at Roy’s Pools, Park St., Castro St., Arroyo/Barranca. A special thanks to Bill for the use of his classic Ford pickup for water transport to our sites. The season continues hot and dry and we appreciate the help from our dedicated volunteers, but we always need more help from you new volunteers out there. Visit spawnusa.org/upcomingevents for details on our future restoration sites and events. Please join us!
