Theodore Payne Foundation – Conze Grant
The Theodore Payne Native Flora area at Valley Park was installed by the Hermosa Beach Garden Club in 1966. In the intervening years it had fallen into a poor state and on November 1, 2010, the very first Conze Grant was awarded to Friends of the Parks, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in Hermosa Beach, for the purpose of renovating the historic Theodore Payne Native Flora Area. Betty Starr writes us with an update (November, 2019)
With the help of the South Bay CNPS, Hermosa Beach Boy Scouts, and Hermosa Beach Friends of the Parks the garden was re-planted in 2014
