Fall Planting Projects

There are three park-projects in the works by MFPA for this Fall. Andrew Oberhelman, a local Boy Scout, is designing and implementing a landscape on the east-side of McAbee, across from the J. Fontana Memorial Garden.

All who use McAbee Road are aware of the need for landscaping at this location! Andrew is doing this project in partial fulfillment of his Eagle/Life Scout requirements. He will be planting California Native Plants (mostly in the manzanita family) come November.

The second project is the creation of California Native Plant Island C (NPI-C),

which will be located in Fontana West, just west of the existing NPI-A. It will be very similar to the one we planted in Fontana West this last Spring. Finally, work will continue on beautifying the area across from Glowing Court, just east of the Soccer Fields in T. J. Martin Park. The Fortnight Lilies were just too much to maintain and try to keep under control! Drought resistant plants with Spring color are replacing the lillies.

Now, as you know, we did some fund-raising ( and fun-raising, come to think of it) at our Third Annual, Heart-of-the-Park Event this last August. However, we need your continued support to maintain the effort to restore and improve our Parks. If you wish to contribute directly to any one of these tree projects, please consider using the “Make a Donation” link on the top-right of the homepage, and use Pay-Pal or whatever means is convenient to you to donate. If you want to support a particular project, reference one of the following:

The Scout Project at McAbee
Native Plant Island “C”
Restoration Project at Glowing Court

Of course, a general contribution to MFPA would be greatly appreciated.

If you like what you see in the way of Park Restoration and Improvements, please consider donating to MFPA; and thank you for your consideration.

P. P. Pizzo, Chairman
Park Restoration and Improvement Committee
