The public is invited to discover the new section of the SLO Botanical Gardens after the 29
– This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Templeton Lions Club as well as the Boy Scouts of Troop 322 and 323 will plant approx. 80 native plants in a section of the San Luis Obispo Botanical Gardens. The Templeton Club secured funding for this grant through the California Lions Club Foundation, which will be used to benefit the natural environment.
With support from the Central Coast State Parks Association (CCSPA), plants were secured to and through SLO Botanical Gardens (SLOGB). These native plants will support healthy habitat and migration for the western monarch butterfly and other pollinator species. For more information on the Western Monarch Trail, visit: westernmonarchtrail.com.
Scouts from Troops 322 and 323 will earn merit badges while helping the club complete this grant project by digging and amending the ground and helping to plant them, all while following a design curated by SLOBG.
This nonprofit event is sponsored by the California Lions Club Foundation with support from volunteers and partners.
The public is invited to experience this new section of the SLO Botanical Gardens at 3450 Dairy Creek Rd, San Luis Obispo anytime after the 29th.
