Together, we did it!!!
Our 5th Annual Laguna Re-Leaf Day on Saturday, April 5th
was a HUGE success!
In less than three hours, we planted 600+ native trees and plants along Irwin Creek close to the Laguna, helping restore a degraded habitat. And, we surpassed our fundraising goal!
Immense gratitude goes out to everyone who participated -- 80+ volunteers and fundraisers of all ages, team leaders, board members, staff, and all our generous donors and sponsors. Take a look at the amazing list of sponsors and in-kind donations on our Laguna Re-Leaf webpage. To see a list of the dedicated fundraisers and what they accomplished, see our FirstGiving event page. It takes a village to restore an ecosystem, and once again, our vibrant community stepped up to make it possible.
If you'd like to make a donation towards Laguna Re-Leaf Day, it's not too late, donate here.
Many thanks for all your support!
