April Work Sites - Soto, Submarine Memorials, Point Loma Park, Ed's Triangle
One of our sites is Ed's Triangle. Here is a little background on this site.
The gateway to Point Loma, lovingly referred to as Ed’s Triangle because Ed Streicher volunteered to manually turn on the palm tree irrigation/pick up litter every week for over 10 years (the City of SD refers to it as Median #4), is located at the intersection of Sunset Cliffs Blvd. and Nimitz Blvd.
It has been generously sponsored by the Kobey Family since the spring of 2011. They send PLA $720 on a quarterly basis to help maintain this large 1.3 acre parcel of land. Kim Kobey and the Kobey family (committed to help maintain this median for ten years in memory of Monte Kobey, Founder of Kobey’s Swap Meet who died in 1989.
Torrey Pines, Tequila Agaves (generously donated by Marty Schmidt of Environs), and low lying native and drought tolerant plants create aggregates of color in the median.
The triangle near Sunset Cliffs Blvd. and Nimitz has its challenges with homeless debris and broken irrigation pipes.
This month, as always, we did our best to weed and pick up some of the litter.
Point Loma Credit Union on Sports Arena Blvd., a long time PLA member and supporter, sponsored a delicious Mexican brunch for the Mean Green Team today.
