In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy and commitment to service, our "Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service" included:
Propagation/ planting of trees, shrubs, and drought-tolerant, native plants, application of a paper-sheet and cardboard barrier that will be covered with mulch, construction of bioswales within specified parkway space, and solidification of our ocean-garden as a "Monarch Butterfly Waystation".
Monarch Way stations are places that provide resources necessary for monarchs to produce successive generations and sustain their migration.
The completion of this project also helps reduce our landscape's water-footprint, flooding at the intersection of Gundry and 65th, increased removal of silt and pollution from surface runoff water (bioswales) and supply of ecosystem services, and improved visual aesthetic through creative design.
