Lagoon Earth Day Planting!

I am extremely excited about this Earth Day! For the first time in a while I will actually be organizing an Earth Day event on the actual Day of Earth which some people forget is always April 22nd. This actual Earth Day next Thursday I will be hanging out with my Colorado Lagoon Friends from 2pm-sunset helping people plant native wildflowers along the Lagoon's East Bank!! People are welcome to come and go as they please and I look forward to seeing people throughout their days and offering them the opportunity to pay homage to Mother Earth. It is also exciting because this is our last public planting event at the Lagoon for the season. It will be a nice conclusion to a very successful restoration project.

For you plant dorks. Here are a few wildflowers we will be planting on Earth Day:
Blue-Eyed Grass: Sisyrinchium bellum
Coast Goldenbush: Isocoma menziesii
Yerba Mansa: Anemopsis californica
California Poppy: Eschscholzia californica
Deerweed: Lotus scoparius
Sticky Monkeyflower: Mimulus aurantiacus
