Anheuser-Busch Volunteers at the Park!

On Saturday, November 9th the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park had about 50 volunteers from Anheuser-Busch participate in a volunteer event. A beautiful morning coupled with a great group of hard working and wonderful people helped make a great day in the park. Volunteers helped remove dried out vegetation, invasive species and cleaned up the park. They did such an amazing job and made a lot of progress in the park.

A big THANK YOU to all the Anheuser-Busch volunteers that came out to support the overall health of the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park!

Eagle Scout project at the Chino Creek Park

On Saturday, August 11, 2012 the Chino Creek Wetlands and Educational Park hosted an Eagle Scout project organized by Jonathan Hagman. The goal of the project was to create a small food forest within the Park near the Garden in Every School demonstration garden. This area of the park was originally a grassland area, but unfortunately, due to all the rabbits it has been diffculit to keep the grass alive. Some of the grasses like the native Deer Grass and the Red Pennisetum don't get eaten by the rabbits, so it was decided to leave those there to grow with the food forest.
A total of 14 volunteers came out to support Jonathan by planting numerous fruit trees and installing drip irrigation at the root zones of each of the plants. Jonathan learned how to install drip irrigation before the project was organized so that he could teach his volunteers how to properly install drip irrigation.
