Volunteers plant more than 22,000 natives each year

Plant yourself at CSUMB

Return of the Natives, the education and outreach arm of CSU Monterey Bay’s Watershed Institute, has a big idea for 2015.

RON plans to transform parts of CSUMB’s Seaside campus into a living laboratory of learning and stewardship. It will invite the public to help plant up to 3,000 native plants on sites where former Army buildings have been demolished. The work, to be done during the rainy months of January, February and March, will help to create an inviting campus.

The vision mural, through a new lens

A new vision mural will start to take shape in a few weeks.

Students in Juan Luna-Avin’s painting and mural class have started sketching out the mural that will be painted along a wall on Inter-Garrison Road and Fifth Avenue. Painting is expected to start the third week in September and be completed by the end of the semester.
