Update On Dramatic Transformation of Seneca Avenue Streetscape Into Ecological CA Native Rain Gardens

Continuing with our earlier post on Transformation of Seneca Avenue Streetscape in San Francisco, we want to share more updates on the progress of this unique urban greening project by Life Frames, Inc. & A Living Library.  Seneca Avenue, between San Jose and Cayuga Avenues in the Islais Creek Watershed, has long been a wide, barren, long hill, contributing greatly to overflowing sewers and flooding in the Cayuga Valley and Islais Creek Watershed.

Over 200 students from Leadership High School, as well as other community members, have actively participated in planting California native  trees and understory plants on the site.
