RGC Projects


San Diego Zoo Safari - 1st Friday & 3rd Wednesday 

Chandler Herb Garden -Our members maintain the Herb garden at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We have planted native plants along with herbs for culinary and medical uses with the focus of inviting birds, bees and butterflies to this wonderful garden. We keep it looking beautiful for the park vistors to enjoy. Come join us  and  enjoy the sound of all the animals in the park while you work. Chairperson: Debbie Gomez


Collier Community Park- 2nd & 4th Fridays 

In 2006, our members started a community project to educate and inspire other members and the general public through plant collections which beautify Collier Park. We continue to plant           and maintain a garden with natives and waterwise plants, trees       and schrubs. We enstalled a Blue Star Memorial in the garden to honor all service personnel. There are many paths to walk and benches to rest on. There is also a Children's Garden to enjoy.        All RGC members are welcome to join this crew.                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.
