On January 23, over 65 volunteers joined LA Audubon and BCR at Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook State Park for a morning of native plant restoration at this breathtaking site! With everyone’s help, we moved closer to the day when wildlife and native plants will once again flourish on this spectacular hillside overlooking Ballona Creek.
Volunteers of all ages enjoyed learning, digging, removing weeds, and planting. We cleared exotic annual grasses, mainly wild oats, and planted CA sagebrush, CA buckwheat, coast goldenbush, white sage, and black sage.
In all, the volunteers cleared 45 30-gallon bags of weeds and planted approximately 200 native plants! What a great way to start the new year!
