Saturday April 24: Get to know Rainbow Beach!

24 Apr

Please come out to Rainbow Beach Dunes for the first workday of 2010 on Saturday, April 24 from 10am – noon.

You will find out what makes the plants and animals at this site so special– learn about the history of the beach, how to identify interesting (prickly pear cactus!) and important (marram grass!) plants, find out about the animals that make their home here, and make the area even more beautiful by picking up garbage along the way.

Rainbow Beach is located at 3111 E. 77th St. By car, enter from 79th St., go past the water treatment plant, and park in the first parking lot. Rainbow Beach Dune is at the southern end of the beach. Tools and equipment will be provided, but please bring water and dress appropriately for the weather. Contact Alison Anastasio at for questions and to RSVP.

*Mark your calendar!*
Other upcoming workdays at Rainbow Beach:
Saturday May 22 – Forb planting
Saturday June 26 – Plant inventory
Saturday July 31 – Weed/Invasive plant management
