Pacific View work day set for Nov. 5

The Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance is inviting volunteers to the Pacific View School site for a third work day — the final work party of 2016 — on Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8 a.m. to noon.

This time, the focus will be on sprucing up Pacific View’s public entrance on the northeast corner by removing weeds and litter and installing downslope erosion control with straw wattles, as well as other tasks like cleaning up trash and sweeping sidewalks.

“If you have shovels, rakes, or a wheelbarrow, they will be handy — mark them with your name,” one organizer said. “Enter the site from the south side from F Street, just up from the corner of F and Third St. There will be on-site parking designated for this event. Wear clothes suitable for gardening and sun protection — hat, sunscreen, etc. Water and oranges will be provided.”

Additionally, funds are needed for rental of two electric breakers, extension cords and purchase of straw wattles and blankets.
