Great news: Back in April we submitted a proposal to restore upland native plants along the Dominguez Channel and do some related community education and outreach. Our proposal was accepted and funded!
We had asked for $30k and we were funded at $22k, so we have some additional work to do on the budget before we start. Today we met to focus on that task and draw up a list of actions and we’re optimistic about completing everything that we promised.
Of course we’ll keep all of you in blog land updated right here, but a better way to stay in touch is to join the Friends / Amigos of Dominguez Watershed email list.
