Get back to nature with a trip to Santiago Park Nature Preserve

STUDENT can increase public understanding and appreciation of our diminishing resources by participating in a service learning project at Santiago Park Nature Preserve.

Golden West College offers five Service Learning projects each year. The first project for 2013 is being held on Feb. 23.  The “Back to Natives” Restoration Event is being held at the Santiago Park Nature Preserve.

The Preserve is located by the Orange Town and Country South Shopping Center, between the Garden Grove Freeway and the Santa Ana Freeway.

Transportation is being provided, so if you plan to attend, meet at the Gothard side of the school at 8 a.m.

The event will close around 12:30 pm. If you will be providing your own transportation, you will need to fill out a personal transportation waiver. Parking will be located at 600 E. Memory Lane, Santa Ana, CA 92705.

Remember to bring closed toe shoes, signed waivers and reusable water bottles.  Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
