MONROVIA - We are excited to provide you with an update on the ongoing landscaping project at Monrovia High School (MHS). Our commitment to revitalizing the campus is making significant progress, thanks to the dedication of our partners at Amigos de los Rios and the support of our wonderful community.
Removing grass in front of the school is essential for installing native habitats and Mediterranean plants. These cleared-out areas will help create space for vibrant plants on our campus.
Our partners at Amigos de los Rios brought in skilled arborists to assess the health of the four legacy oak trees. Ensuring their well-being is a top priority. To support these trees, we have taken steps such as removing irrigation from around their roots, surrounding them with high-grade mulch, and installing curbs in front of the school to accommodate future plantings.
We will provide further updates as the project evolves at MHS. For those interested in volunteering with Amigos de los Rios on this project, please visit their website for future events.
Thank you for your patience as we work together to create a greener campus for our students, families, and the community. We’d also like to thank the California State Coastal Conservancy for providing the grant to protect our precious water resources through the Los Angeles Basin Water Sheds.
