Once again this year, BCLT will have cut firewood rounds available for sale: $75 truckload or $25 bonfire bundle! (Local delivery is available.)

Why plant native?  Drought tolerant native plants not only conserve water, they save you time & money!  All while providing a unique Southern California beauty, and a diversity of habitat for hummingbirds, butterflies, and beneficial insects!

We look forward to seeing old friends and new 'water-wise' converts at our 17th-annual Native Plant Sale with Don Hohimer.  Bring a friend, and share the experience!

Our Fall 2013 1st Saturday Nature Walks are sure to be fun & exciting for the whole family!!  We have LOTS of opportunities to get involved with hands-on projects and volunteer efforts with a "Native Plant" theme in the next few months.... Come on out and join us, meet some like-minded folks, and make a positive impact in your community!

Some highlights for Fall 2013 include:

* Scott McMillan - our October walk leader - will be talking about his upcoming grant-funded project to restore the endangered San Diego Thorn-mint at Wright's Field in Alpine.  Scott will be recruiting community volunteers to help out with hands-on restoration projects toward this effort!  

* Our 17th annual "Native Plant Sale" will again be hosted by local native plant expert, Don Hohimer.  LOTS of native plant varieties will be available for sale in front of Joan MacQueen Middle School on the first Saturday in November.  All proceeds benefit BCLT programs & land conservation efforts.

* Winter rains mean planting season....  Come on out for our December volunteer workday, and help us restore Alpine's creeks & streams by replacing non-native habitat with attractive and beneficial native plants!  Group will meet at Joan MacQueen Middle School, and shuttle to the project site.

What a beautiful morning for our bench dedication with the Cadenhead's!  Our dedication ceremony was both intimate and well-attended.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us! Especially the Cadenhead family for your generosity and strong show of support. 

Wright's Field now has a new gathering place. A place to sit and relax, watch the sunset, and maybe meet your neighbors...
