Ocean Friendly Gardens and Native Plant Maintenance
Paul Herzog and Beth Crosse, Surfrider Foundation

Paul is the National Coordinator of Surfrider Foundation's Ocean Friendly Gardens Program ( ). Beth Crosse is the Chairperson of the Ocean Friendly Gardens Program Committee for the Surfrider-South Bay Chapter. Surfrider has accomplished a great deal since Paul first appeared as our Guest Speaker five years ago.

Paul and Beth will share "lessons learned" from reconstructing landscapes of private residences as well as the design, execution and maintenance of large projects in public areas. They will offer details and pictures of several recently completed, high-profile installations here in the South Bay, including Hawthorne City Hall (almost all native plants) and the Hermosa Beach Community Center, which used 100% native plants and was partially funded by a Conze Grant from CNPS South Coast Chapter.

Paul and Beth also spoke at the recent CNPS Conservation Conference, at which several CNPS chapters expressed interest in collaborating on programming.
