Rotary EcoAction Day, 2021.08.21

The Rotary Club of Whittier and the Whittier Sunrise Rotary Club collaborated with Amigos De Los Rios and the East Whittier City School District to plant a Butterfly Garden at Ocean View Elementary School on Saturday August 21, 2021. The movers and shakers of this event were Ocean View Principal Kim Songer, Rotary of Whittier Past President Monica Peters, and Whittier Sunrise Rotary President Rick Shope– plus the ecological support regarding Native California plant species, Marian Coensgen, from Amigo De Los Rios. Participants included volunteers from the two Rotary Clubs, a whole host of local Cub Scout troupes, as well as Whittier College students representing the Center for Community Engagement (CEC). A good time was had by all!
