Join Surfrider San Diego and WiLDCOAST on a Lawn Patrol (neighborhood walk)

Sunday July 17, 2011

Date - Sunday, July 17, 9am-11am

The tour will begin at the Tijuana Estuary Visitor Center, 301 Caspian Way, Imperial Beach


Learn how a typical lawn can became an Ocean Friendly Garden (OFG) by “applying CPR:”

C - Conservation - properly-spaced native & climate appropriate plants; 

P - Permeability - healthy soil, mulch and hardscape directs water into garden;

R - Retention - directing rain gutters into mulch and “swale trail” crossing the garden.

We’ll walk the neighborhood, using OFG Sign Criteria to see who has OFG elements. We’ll leave behind a flyer for those close to being OFG and see if they want help. Come join the tour, or let us know if you would like us to stop at your yard and provide tips for your landscape!

Bring: water, sunscreen, clipboard and pen or pencil

RSVP to: us know if you want us to stop at your yard)
