About the event
The Monarch Mile is an inspired all-volunteer group working directly with Burbank's Parks and Recreation Department. The project was formed in 2019 with an eagerness to plant and maintain local native plants along the Chandler Bikeway.
Diverse volunteers of all ages, experiences, talents, and interests are welcome to contact us and join the efforts.
Who can take part?
