Trees are one of our most valuable resources. 3,535 of them have been assessed in Watts. This inventory will help to strategically manage our Urban Forest, identify planting opportunities, calculate tree-related benefits, and will be continuously updated with ongoing forestry activities.
They say the best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago or today! We have 2 tree planting projects in #Watts to plant about 100 trees along 103rd St & Weigand Elementary. On this 50th #EarthDay, you can still be part of positive change in your community by caring for a tree. Apply for a free street tree: http://tinyurl.com/wattstree. #wattsrising
Watts Neighborhood Council Members were proud to be part of the signing ceremony for the Executive Directive to realize the vision of L.A.’s Green New Deal and put our city on the path to a carbon-neutral future.
Watts Neighborhood Council was excited to help with outreach for this hands on program featuring multiple green activities for all ages including kid-friendly gardening and tree care advice, a solar-power demonstration and electric vehicle test drives.
The LADWP Board voted in favor of Shared Solar, allowing renters to have access to solar power and rebates! And Watts NC was on hand to speak up in support.
Watts checked out electric vehicles at our Drive & Ride event at St. John's Methodist as part of Electric Drive Week.
The Third Annual Watts Electric Car Drive & Ride will showcase Watts' continuing evolution as a clean energy hotspot. Join us for test drives, food, activities and information on $9,500 in rebates!
Did you know that the City has a program that allows you to get up to 7 shade trees for FREE delivered right to your door!?
The environmental report found that although the project could have significant effect on the environment, revisions to the project make those possible impacts insignificant.
...the disconnect between the environmental toxics found on the site and the way they are being communicated to the public stems from the faulty interpretation and reporting of these results, rather than faulty testing.
