500 Trees & Shrubs to be Installed in Effort to Restore Nipomo Creek
On SATURDAY, FEBRURARY 6TH, 2010, from 9am-NOON volunteers will help plant 500 native trees and plants as part of the 2nd phase of a major riparian revegetation project along the North tributary of Nipomo Creek near the historic Dana Adobe in Nipomo.
This Restoration Planting will take place on a 100-acre conservation property which was permanently protected in the fall of 2008.
WHERE TO MEET: Volunteers should park and meet at the Dana Adobe at 9am on February 6, 2010. The Dana Adobe is located at 671 S. Oakglen Ave Nipomo, CA 93444---reachable from 101 freeway north of city of Santa Maria and south of Pismo Beach. The offramp closest is Tefft Street.
WHY THIS PROPERTY? Working in partnership with The Land Conservancy, San Luis Obispo County acquired 100-acres across from the Dana Adobe, and protection of an additional 29 acres directly surrounding the historic landmark was achieved through a partnership between the non-profit Dana Adobe Nipomo Amigos (DANA) and The Land Conservancy.
The restoration project is funded by the State Coastal Conservancy and CA Department of Fish & Game Office of Spill Prevention and Response from settlement monies from the Guadalupe Oil spill.
