Ocean Friendly Gardens Lawn Patrol

Join Surfrider Long Beach on a Lawn Patrol (neighborhood walk)

Date - Sunday, August 14, 10am-12noon
The tour will begin at 2636 Maine Ave, Long Beach, CA 90806

Weʼll walk the neighborhood, using OFG Sign Criteria to see who has OFG elements. Weʼll leave behind a flyer for those close to being OFG and see if they want help. Come join the tour, or let us know if you would like us to stop at your yard and provide tips for your landscape!

  • C - Conservation - properly-spaced native & climate appropriate plants;
  • P - Permeability - healthy soil, mulch and hardscape directs water into garden;
  • R - Retention - directing rain gutters into mulch and “swale trail” crossing the garden.

RSVP to: (let us know if you want us to stop at your yard)

Bring: water, sunscreen, clipboard and pen or pencil
