NEW Science & Service on Saturdays and Much More...

Hello again! The students are back in school, and we're working in the background to enhance the experience of education for the Lincoln Cluster students. Below you'll read how we're creating growth and opportunity for students through the contributions we've secured, the extracurricular activities we are setting up, and the state of affairs down at the EarthLab. And you can join us in all these developments! Let's do it!
New Saturday EarthLab Club: Science & Service.
Any and all members of the community are welcome to join us every Saturday at the EarthLab from 9:30am-11:30am. Get more information on dates here. We hope to see you on Saturday.

NASSCO Work Party at the EarthLab
Thanks NASSCO for your support in prepping the EarthLab for the 3000 Lincoln Cluster students expected to use the space for outdoor science education. They shot some wonderful photos, so take a look at them here.
Elida Chavez and Patrice Baker
You might have been seeing Groundwork San Diego’s amazing climate action outreach team, Elida Chavez and Patrice Baker, meeting with residents in our Encanto neighborhoods around the EarthLab. They are sharing the benefits of low-cost home improvements that include low flush toilets, low flow faucets and showerheads, rain barrels, tree plantings, laundry-to-landscape systems, and drought tolerant landscapes. Dozens of neighbors are signing up! These improvements provide aesthetic and economic benefits to residents, and contribute significantly to a healthier environment. 
If you are interested in meeting with Patrice and Elida to see how they can help, please call the Groundwork Office at 619-594-0430. Let’s all Go Green!
