Volunteer Activity Continues in Fern Canyon

CATEGORY: Current Events · In the News |
On Nov 28, 2016


Volunteer coordinator Laura Howe is constantly looking for volunteers to help with various projects in Griffith Park — and Fern Canyon is just one of them. Fern Canyon was one of the areas destroyed in the 2007 fire but due to efforts of Marshall High instructor, Jay Benoit and students enrolled in the School for Environmental Studies, native plantings are prospering.

However, it’s one of the many areas in the Park without a water source and must be hand-watered in order to survive the drought. This is where we can all help to make a difference and an impact. FoGP sends out notifications when we’re holding a volunteer activity, but if you’re hiking or recreating somewhere in the vicinity, you’re always welcome to join in. In fact, we encourage dropping in because this is “The People’s Park.” The only requirement — a willingness to pitch in, and get dirty!
