July 9th Field Trip Directions and Notes
At 1:00 PM, we will start the field trip at Garden/Garden 1718 and 1724 Pearl Street in Santa Monica, across the street from the Main Campus on the backside. (Bring quarters to feed the meter!)
The gardens are easy to find. Do plan on shielding yourself from the sun and have plenty of fluids on hand to stay hydrated.
Approximately at 3:30, we will leave Garden/Garden driving east bound on Pearl to 23rd Street, turning right and staying on it as makes a curve near the Santa Monica Airport and changes its name to Walgrove Avenue. Continue southbound and parking on the street near Venice High School and join us in the garden. Parking on campus is not advised - the grounds people will NOT notify you when they are going home and locking the gates. I can get you out, but it involves driving over their lawn and down a curb, both probably illegal. We will be on campus till about 5:00. We will be doing a project in water abatement at the garden - this will be a practical application of some of the things you are learning in the course and certain to be valuable towards cementing your understanding.
