Thanks to all who turned out for our latest events
Nov. 18, 2023: A very successful pickup along Camino de Oeste and parts of Speedway. At great turnout!
October 21, 2023: We had a nice turnout for our Painted Hills Road/Speedway pickup on October 21. After the pickup our Fall Membership Meeting and plant swap was held at Painted Hills Church. Kendall Kroesen, Outreach Coordinator at Mission Garden, was our guest speaker. It was a very interesting and enlightening talk about the history of the area where Mission Garden sits at the base of "A" Mountain, aka Sentinal Peak. A big thank you to Kendall for coming to our meeting and giving a great presentation. If you've not yet visited Mission Garden, put it on your list. It's well worth the visit. And the plant swap, it was fun to discuss the different plants that were offered to be traded. Thanks to all who brought in some fun and interesting specimens!
Roadside Pickup along Camino de Oeste on 11/18/23 yields a lot of trash. Thanks to all who pitched in to help keep our Gates Pass Area clean!
