Hello Ocean Friendlies,

We have an Action Packed Summer lined up for you, so don’t miss out!

In August, we continue with our second Lawn Patrol this year (Saturday, August 2nd) as a part of the Dos Caminos residential retrofit. This is going to be a Fun and Hands-on Educational Event so stay tuned for details.

Currently we are in full swing on our LARGEST OCEAN FRIENDLY GARDEN YET!!!
