The La Crescenta community, while making strides towards improving local biodiversity, has an issue in terms of the amount of biodiversity in public spaces. Most yards/gardens cultivated here rely on non-native species, often plain grass lawns, that strip the local ecosystem of diversity. We believe that Crescenta Valley High School, as a major institution in this community, should do its part to promote local biodiversity. 

Increasing biodiversity is important for manifold reasons - all of us having lawns that look the same actively curbs the benefits that biodiversity brings. A few examples of how biodiversity benefits communities are as follows: biodiversity increases protection of water resources, soils formation and protection, and increases nutrient storage and recycling, all of which will have a positive impact on our community as a whole. Planting a native pollinator garden in the lawn facing Community in CVHS will increase the amount of native plants and animals in the area, thus increasing biodiversity.

A pollinator garden does not have to be prohibitively expensive. For example, a 15' x 7' pollinator garden kit from Prairie Nursery is only $239. We urge Crescenta Valley High School and the Glendale Unified School District to take this important step towards increasing biodiversity in our great community. Thank you for your time.
