Creek Mouth Restoration Project Update

The Carpinteria Creek Mouth is full of growth. The native plants that were planted only a few months ago are showing significant growth. The Coast Sunflowers are currently in bloom and bringing beautiful color to the site. Below are some photos of the sites progress. The project will require some maintenance through the summer, in the form of weeding and watering to insure that the native plants get established. Thank you, to all of the volunteers that have helped with the project. We hope to see you Saturday, May 14th, for our next restoration work day, and for the Carpinteria Creek Watershed Coalition's 10 year celebration.
