The Canary Island pines on the Blvd. have been trimmed thanks to Paul Matalucci and Tom Osborne who volunteered on the medians during their recent vacation from their apple farm in Oregon. Paul created the Diamond Heights Blvd. Median Project in 2014 in order to improve the appearance of our neighborhood. Thank you to all who help to continue Paul’s vision for lovely stretches along the medians.
We are delighted to announce that Nature in the City staff and interns have started caring for plants on the medians funded by a City Community Challenge Grant. Their workdays and funding are limited so that we still need lots of volunteer involvement.
Please join us for even an hour or two!
