Students Envision Landscaping along Dominguez Channel
March 18, 2011 § 3 Comments
Viviana Franco’s Spaces of Blight (SOB) project is turning its focus onto the Dominguez Channel in Hawthorne. Through the assistance of the Friends/Amigos of the Dominguez Watershed, From Lot to Spot/Spaces of Blight received a Wetlands Recovery Project grant to work with youth to assess a reach of the Dominguez Channel bike path, design native landscaping to abate erosion, treat runoff, and create beauty. Students and volunteers will be installing the plants over the coming months.
Check out photodocumentation of student analysis and design here.
The project complements a landscaping project underway by the County of Los Angeles along the Dominguez Channel.
