Second Pacific View cleanup scheduled


Following fast on the heels of last-month’s successful debut cleanup party at Pacific View School, The Encinitas Arts Culture and Ecology Alliance has scheduled another volunteer work morning for Sept. 17.

Last month’s cleanup event — which saw over 30 volunteers and various city and county officials pitching in — made a significant headway in cleaning up accumulated trash, weeds and debris around the school’s nearly three-acre perimeter.

The Sept. 17 work party, which begins at 8:30 a.m., will focus on improving erosion control by re-installing the soil-retention fiber rolls on the school’s periphery. Brad Roth and Mark Wisniewski of the Cottonwood Creek Conservancy will lend their grading and soil expertise. In addition, volunteers will move to the interior schoolyard to clean up the proposed garden spaces and contribute to a more pleasant PVS experience overall.

Volunteers must sign a general release form under EACEA’s Right of Entry agreement, and are encouraged to wear hats and use sun protection as well as bring garden tools, buckets and cleaning supplies. For more information, contact Joy Lyndes at
