Come Learn by Tending the Old Town Native Plant Landscape

  • Old Town Historical State Park 4002 Wallace Street San Diego, CA, 92110 United States (map)

Volunteers are invited to join us to care for our ten year old
ethnobotanical landscape in Old Town State Historic Park. We show up the
morning of the second Saturday every month.

In June we'll complete cleaning up the little demonstration wetland so
visitors can see and learn about the usefulness of bulrush and yerba mansa.
We also will prune overgrown California's native herbaceous plants, shrubs
and trees of thirty-odd species of useful California native plants.

The 1-acre landscape is found at the corner of Taylor and Congress Streets,
near the intersection of I-8 and I-5. Park in the lot off Calhoun and Taylor
Streets. Meet under the trees by the parking lot.

Bring drinking water & sun protection. Also bring gloves & weeding tools, or
share ours. For more information contact Peter or Kay at
