The Old Town Native Landscape Needs Your Help to Prepare it For Big Fall Planting

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

Where: Meet at 9 AM at the McCoy House Museum, the two-story white building at the west end of Old Town State Park where the bus/train/trolley station is located. This is at the corner of Taylor and Congress Streets.

The Native Landscape will be the site of a major planting effort in November-December 2019. In order to minimize the weed seeds on the site, we are inviting volunteers to come once/month on the second Saturday of the month between now and November, to weed. Then, when we plant new native plants,
they will have the best chance to establish without having to fight for space with exotic invaders.

In May we plan to remove exotic grasses that are already going to seed, to reduce this years' prolific weed crop's seed from getting into the ground. We also hope to finally obliterate the three weedy clover species that came up this year.

Bring water and have sun protection. If you have gloves and a favorite weeding tool, bring them, or share ours.

Take bus, train, or trolley to the Old Town Station, and cross at the corner of Taylor and Congress. If you drive there is free parking in the F lot in Old Town, next to Calhoun Street, or in the CalTrans lot that you enter at Juan and Taylor Streets.
