Planting Poppy Creek
Thanks to Landpaths IOOBY (In Our Own Back Yard) program along with the City of Santa Rosa for coordinating a workday on Poppy Creek in Steele Lane park on March 7. Twenty sixth graders from Hidden Valley School teamed up with twenty third graders from neighboring Steele Lane Elementary to plant native plants along the north bank of the creek. The morning activity forged some bonds between the children and their local environment, and also brought out some neighbors to help with the project. Thanks to all who participated!
