Boulder Oaks Community Park Gets a New Native Plant Pollinator Garden and “Free Little Library” – March 2019

March 26, 2019

Boulder Oaks Community Park gets a new native plant pollinator garden and a free library box all in one month!

30 native plants were donated by BCLT through our Living Classroom program, and we partnered with AEF through their Wheel of Experts to teach students how to plant native trees and wildflowers.

Next up, the JMMS Builder’s Club is dedicating their free little library on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at 10am. Free books for kids K-5, and a nice little resource for Alpine.

This is what we can do when the community works together on our public parks and open spaces!
