Our Latest Project

The LOCAC Trees and Landscape subcommittee and the affiliated non-profit Los Osos Bear Roots Tree & Landscape group, with the help of community volunteers, the locally-based landscape firm Botanica Nova, County Parks and Recreation, and 55 cadets from the Grizzly Academy, planted 15 trees on February 7th and 8th at the Los Osos Community Park. This was the largest, and most successful, project to plant trees in Los Osos, where so many have been lost in the last decade.

The project was moved forward by community volunteers, park management led by Rangers Bob Yetter (now retired) and new Head Ranger, Lasca Gaylord. However it could not have happened without funds donations of $2600 from community members, $1000 from the County and material donated by Central Coast Landscape Products of San Luis Obispo.

Work started Friday led by early-rising volunteers with shovels in hand, and was completed on Saturday with the amazing help of a busload of hard working Grizzly Academy members. These young men, ranging in age from 16 to 18 years, did much of the heavy work, digging 4 ft by 4ft holes and lifting the 300 pound trees into place. There was pizza for all after more than 5 hours of work.

Please become part of the LOCAC Trees and Landscape subcommittee and help plan future projects.  We meet on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 in the small meeting room at the Community Center.
