Project Lead Website:

The project will complete a service learning habitat restoration program for one year at Santiago Park Nature Reserve. Monthly volunteer events will be held at the Reserve, at which local students and community members will remove invasive, non-native species, seed and plant appropriate native plant species, and monitor the habitat. Community members and student volunteers from throughout Santa Ana and Orange County CA will be participating. Back to Natives will partner with several Orange County high schools and colleges to bring students out to service learning projects. These schools include Godinez Fundamental High School, Orange County High School of the Arts, Saddleback and Segerstrom High Schools, and Golden West College.
