Students and community come together to beautify Border Field State Park
IMPERIAL BEACH (KUSI) – Imperial Beach High School students and community members came together to beautify Border Field State Park.
It was all a part of the Tijuana River Reserves habitat restoration project.
Volunteers pulled dangerous plants growing over the state park and picked up any trash along the way.
Imperial Beach mayor Serge Dedina, who was been at the front of the battle in preventing Tijuana sewage from spilling into the US, was par of today’s event.
“It’s really important to make sure that we understand that we continue to clean up and restore the Tijuana River Valley,” he says. “It’s closed right now because of pollution so it’s important that we continue to fight to clean up and restore this California State Park and our entire coastline.”
Dedina and a host of other lawmakers and business people recently returned from a trip to Mexico where they addressed the Tijuana sewage issue with their Mexican counterparts.
