Because of the devastating fire that burned Coronado National Memorial in June, we were invited to lead volunteers in the planting of 1,500 baby agaves to help restore the land! Because of our time spent down there earlier in the season, the work we accomplished, AND the fact that we had to evacuate from the same fire that burned Coronado, we were happy to help. Being at Coronado, so close to the border of Mexico, was a new experience for all of us, and we felt extremely connected to the land down there.
On August 20th, we traveled down to Coronado National Memorial and helped prepare for the day. The next thing we knew, there were close to 100 volunteers eager and ready to plant agaves...from children to grandparents!
Within a matter of a few hours, we had reached our goal. 1,500 baby agaves were planted in the ground. It was a HUGE success and we were honored to be a part of it!
Below are some pictures of the amazing community of people that came together to bring Coronado back to life. Enjoy!
