Collier Park Cont…Water-wise Gardening 

We started this garden a few years ago to take advantage of all the native plants that can grow in Ramona. It has grown up beautifully, and we are very proud of it. Since the original garden is looking great, we have decided to expand this garden into a part of the park that has been weed infested. We are working on the pathways and good plant selection.

Chairperson: Teri Schmidt

The park now has a (previously donated) bat box installed due to the generosity of the crew from Pro Trees of Encinitas. http://www.protrees.com  While trimming palm trees, Pro Trees  used a cherry picker to mount it nearly 20ft high. This should assist in the controlling the mosquito population.
