PIERCE COLLEGE BOTANIC GARDEN TREASURE

While visiting Los Angeles Pierce College in Woodland Hills last evening, I had the opportunity to visit the S. Mark Taper Foundation Life Science Botanic Garden. I have to confess that the garden's long title has intimidated me from earlier visits. But last night's visit won't be my last.
The botanic garden is only two years old, having been completed in 2007. It is a perfect example of how native drought-resistant plants can replace uninspiring and water guzzling lawns. And, the garden is a showcase for the San Fernando Valley of what can be accomplished by using regional plants.

All of us who live and work in the Valley can take pride, not only in the wonderful botanic garden, but in the Pierce College commitment to bettering our environment. The progressive west Valley college is leading the way with solar generations, and a natural gas co-generation system. The whole college is alive with exciting environment friendly and supportive projects. With two Orange Line stations serving the campus, a visit to Pierce College should be high on all of our adventure lists.
