On January 20, 2018, a group of about two dozen volunteers showed up to replant the area around the Victory Memorial Grove. The California World War One Centennial Task Force, the Hollywood Post 43 of the American :Legion, the Los Angeles-Eschscholtzia Daughters of the American Revolution, and Council District 13 were represented at the planting.
Representing CCSEP were our president Phillip Murphy, and Michael O’Brien. Among the plantings were the native White Sage and Tropical Milkweed, with groundcover plantings of Lantana. The Sage and the Milkweed attract butterflies, with the Milkweed especially attractive to the Monarch Butterfly. So not only is the Memorial beautified, but our native butterflies also are being provided food plants.
