WEFTEC-11: WEF Volunteers Plant Trees in South Los Angeles Park
What an absolutely beautiful day in Los Angeles for WEF’s 4th annual Community Service Project. This year’s volunteer event was hosted on Saturday Oct 15th at the brand new South Los Angeles Wetlands Park and involved planting 37 trees along the park’s boundary. Organized by WEF’s Students and Young Professionals Committee, nearly 90 students, young professionals and old professionals gathered to work hard, have some fun, plant some trees and leave a bit of beauty here in Los Angeles to last for generations.
The South Los Angeles Wetlands Park is a City of Los Angeles project designed to capture and clean stormwater from local streets and reduce pollutants entering the Los Angeles River. WEF’s project involved planting trees and connecting infiltration piping into the gutter. The pipeline allows rainwater to pass through the gutter and into the tree’s roots – putting stormwater to a better use and eliminating pollution.
