Loyola Marymount University’s Centennial Day of Service
March 24th, 2012
By: Jim Burton, PE

On Saturday March 24th, 2012, EcoKai staff joined with hundreds of other to celebrate Loyola Marymount University’s Centennial Day of Service. As a celebration of the University’s commitment, those in the Los Angeles area worked with LMU students at various sites through the region while many across the country served those most in need in their own communities.

EcoKai staff joined the Friends of Ballona Wetlands and many local volunteers at the newly created Ballona Discovery Park in Playa Vista, California. The 1.7 acre Discovery Park was designed to help people learn more about the history of the watershed and to understand their part in keeping the Ballona Wetlands healthy.

Dr. Eric Strauss, President’s Professor of Biology at LMU and director of the Center for Urban Resilience and Ecological Solutions (CURES), led several teams of volunteers, creating a rain garden, touring the wetlands, restoring a native vegetated garden, and building then installing bird boxes for native tree swallows.

As a proud member of 1% for the Planet, EcoKai continues to volunteer and support those organizations and individuals committed to long term sustainability and environmental protection.
