Alpine Community Center Extends it’s Welcome with New Landscaping By CHIRP

Alpine Community Center extends its “welcome”

*By Maureen Austin on March 11, 2014 – Executive Director, CHIRP for Garden Wildlife, Inc.

Alpine Community Center has always had its “Welcome” mat out — whether hosting community meetings, serving meals to the hungry or assisting victims of fire and other disasters. Now, that mat has been extended outwards to welcome our area winged wildlife–hummingbirds, songbirds and butterflies.

A new garden was planted along the Alpine Boulevard strip of the Center’s parking lot, the latest of a series of gardens being installed in Alpine by volunteers of CHIRP for Garden Wildlife, Inc.

The CHIRP project, known as “Gardens on the Boulevard,” is completely funded by private donations.

Vanessa Rusczyk, project garden designer, said she is pleased that CHIRP was able to put the garden in for the Community Center. “It’s at the entry to our town.” she said.  “We’re glad to make it beautiful!” The new garden is a continuation of the plant palette and design of the garden planted by CHIRP at the Goodwill Store several months ago, she said.

Volunteers who worked to install the Community Center garden were Vanessa Rusczyk, Lisa Lomax, Wally Austin, Maureen Austin, Sue Roff, Kyle Leach, Dave Kebert, and Joan Cunningham.  Special thanks go to Alpine Equipment Rentals for digging equipment and Alpine Landscape Materials for their support of the project.

CHIRP for Garden Wildlife, Inc. is an Alpine-based non-profit organization, dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of birds, butterflies and other ‘creatures of habitat’ through hands-on and interactive programs and gardens.
