Palos Verdes Butterfly Plant Nursery Volunteer Opportunity
Guidance has Partnered with the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy
Saturday, April 18, 2009
9:00 a.m. to Noon
Who: Everyone is invited to join us, including spouses, children, friends, family.
When: Saturday, April 18, 2009, 9:00 AM to Noon.
Where: Land Conservancy Nursery at 3171 N. Gaffey, San Pedro [Defense Fuel Supply Point (DFSP)].
What to bring: Nursery supplies will be provided by the Palos Verdes PLC. Please wear sunscreen, dress appropriately and bring a bottle of water. Please wear your Guidance Green T-Shirt (let Catherine know if you don’t have one already).
What to Expect: The project is to transplant native seedlings at the nursery. Flats of crowded seedlings need to be transferred into individual, larger pots. It’s a great project because volunteers can quantify the amount of good work they have put in and they’re helping us propagate host/food plants that are an integral part of our PV Butterfly Habitat Restoration efforts. This will also help the threatened California gnatcatcher, a small gray bird that is on the endangered species list with the PV Blue Butterfly.
Signing Up: Please let Catherine know by Wednesday, April 15th, if you will be participating and whether or not you will have additional adults and/or children joining you, along with their names.
