Native Plant Garden Work Party

August 10, 2024 - 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Pacific Beach CA 92109

Join us for the Rose Creek Native Plant on the second Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.  Depending on the time of year and the weather, we may be watering, planting, repairing watering basins, picking up trash and/or documenting the plant and animal species we find as we work.

Please bring your own drinking water and snacks. Wear closed-toe shoes with excellent tread as we often work on slippery slopes. Wear long pants and sleeves. A hat can be nice on warm days.

Unless there has been a lot of rain in the last week, please bring a few gallons of tap water in containers you will take home with you! We will use the water to help the newly planted natives survive until their roots are deep enough to survive on their own.

Meet behind the Rose Creek Cottage 2525 Garnet Ave in Pacific Beach. Park on Fogg Street just South of Garnet if the Rose Creek Cottage is hosting an event. Or take public transit. Catch bus # 8 from the Old Town or Balboa Avenue Trolley Stations or anywhere west of Lamont on Grand Avenue in PB or along Mission Blvd. in Mission Beach. Exit at the Rose Creek Cottage at the foot of Soledad Mountain Road.  (Bus #8 goes back and forth between the two trolley stations).
