EarthWorks receives Restoration grant from State Parks

by Chris Klein


an Diego EarthWorks is proud to announce the receipt of a grant from the California State Parks Foundation for our 1999 Community Restoration and Renewal Projects.

Two restoration projects, to be held on Saturday, April 24, have been funded. At Torrey Pines State Preserve, volunteers will assist park rangers by clearing debris and nonnative vegetation from the trails. The second location has not been finalized, but will probably in the South Bay region of San Diego (the site was to be Mission Trails Regional Park, but seasonal bird nesting has made that site unavailable until later in the year).

Altogether, the State Parks Foundation is funding 77 Earth Day Restoration and Cleanup Projects presented by Enron in 27 counties statewide. All will be held on April 24.

The nonprofit California State Parks Foundation has a 30 year history of protecting and enhancing California's 264 State Parks. They have accomplished this through the dedicated support of their 18,000 members and contributors whose continuing financial assistance supports Earth Day and hundreds of State Park projects and educational programs.

To register for one of these projects, to find out the location of our next volunteer meeting, or to schedule a special introduction for your group, club or organization, call our 24-hour voice mail at (619) 496-6666.
