Who: The Bay Foundation
What: Culver City rain garden enhancement. Volunteers will help local wildlife and the environment by participating in hands-on habitat restoration.

The garden is planted with native riparian vegetation to enhance water quality, provide habitat for native birds and wildlife, as well as beautify this stretch of Ballona Creek.
