Odyssey School Volunteers Help Develop Bernal Heights Living Library Nature Walk !

Students and Staff from Odyssey Middle School in San Mateo worked diligently with Life Frames, Inc. and SF Recreation & Park Department on Tuesday, December 17th to plant 292 California native plants on the hillside adjacent to St. Mary’s Recreation Center, as part of the Bernal Heights Living Library Nature Walk.  So much was accomplished and the Nature Walk is growing !


Volunteers planted all California Natives:  Ceanothus (Ceanothus griseus horizontalis ‘Yankee Point’), California Fuchsia (Epilobium canum), Yarrow (Achillea spp.), Douglas Iris (Iris douglasiana), Sticky Monkey (Mimulus aurantiacus), Penstemon (Penstemon ‘Electric Blue’ & ‘Margarita Bop’), and Flowering Currant (Ribes sanguineum).


The Bernal Heights Living Library Nature Walk links schools, parks, public housing, streets, and other open spaces leading to the currently hidden Islais Creek at the south side of St. Mary’s Park.  The Nature Walk is creating a new, expressive,  narrative landscape that is a prototype for what could be occurring throughout the whole Islais Creek Watershed, the largest in San Francisco, that interlinks eleven neighborhoods:  Noe Valley, Mission, Bernal Heights, Potrero Hill, Bayview, Portola, Crocker-Amazon, Excelsior, OMI, Sunnyside, Glen Park.



More volunteer events are coming up.  If  you would like to participate, please contact us:  info@alivinglibrary.org
