Fontana seeking volunteers to help rehabilitate native plant gardens …

FONTANA It’s a chance to help the community and be part of and learn about nature.

On National Public Lands Day, Sept. 30, the city of Fontana is seeking volunteers to help from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mary Vagle Nature Center, 11501 Cypress Ave.

All participants must pre-register by visiting Nature.Fontana.org or call 909-349-6994 by Sept. 29.

Volunteers for the garden project will help rehabilitate California-native plant gardens, receive landscaping tips and learn about water-wise gardening.

During NPLD, the Mary Vagle Nature Center is in partnership with the National Environmental Education Foundation (NEEF). The NEEF provides knowledge through programs that participants can apply to improve the quality of their lives along with the health of the planet.

From America’s neighborhood parks to its extraordinary national parks, public lands are the people’s property. With one-third of land in the public hands, National Public Lands Day provides an opportunity for everyone to ensure public lands remain beautiful for all.
