Stanbridge College REACH – Beyond the Classroom™ invites you to help the North Coastal Operations of the County of Orange, OC Parks at Upper Newport Bay with a monthly habitat restoration project THIS Sunday, August 11, 2013.
Over 15 million years ago, the white cliffs of Upper Newport Bay were formed. It wasn’t until 9,000 years ago when humans inhabited the land and found its resources and natural beauty to be essential to life in Southern California. This is your chance to help preserve our local natural history for the good of our community.
Volunteers are needed to help habitat restoration projects that can include planting, weeding, and watering. Join Preserve staff and other volunteers in enhancing the Bay’s habitat for local wildlife.
Activities may include:
– non-native plant removal
– planting native flora
– trash cleanup
– Butterfly Garden maintenance
No experience is necessary. Water, snacks, and tools are provided by OC Parks.
Date: Sunday, August 11, 2013
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Location: Peter and Mary Muth Interpretive Center – 2301 University Drive, Newport Beach, CA 92660
This is a great opportunity to celebrate the Earth and contribute to the health of our environment!
