New Year, SHINE Together! 


HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to 2023

The NGAC is continuing to hold our monthly zoom gatherings again after our winter hiatus. Our “open to All” monthly meetings will be the FOURTH WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH at 6pm, like last year.

Our gatherings are intended to be informative, fun, and open to all. Until we have a physical facility, or the ability to hybridize meetings, we will stay on zoom, making meetings more accessible to more people. NGAC Members will receive an email with the monthly meeting zoom link.

Grassland Garden


Grassland Garden Location


Volunteers finished mulching the last third of the Grassland Garden. YAY!

Location: Click here for a map to the Grassland Garden or you can enter “Ninos Parkway and Edmonton Dr” in google maps.

We want to make these workdays good experiences with a lot of interesting and fun activities planned around them like birding and identifying bees and butterflies in the garden; learning about monarchs, native plants and grasslands; and nature-related rock painting and chalk art projects. 

Our next workday will be February 18, 2023, from 9:00 – 11:00am, followed by rock painting to decorate our garden  from 11:00 – 12:00.

Help the Environment


clean up in action

The NGAC organized a clean up at the Bannon Creek Parkway on Saturday Dec 17 as part of an Environmental Education and Stormwater Quality Improvement Program.  The Parkway is home to many species of wildlife, that need our protection. The predominant tree species is Quercus Lobata, the valley oak, known for providing the best habitat for wildlife and does the best job of carbon sequestration as well.

This clean up day and education program emphasizes the importance of recycling to keep our local waterways and natural habitats (like the Bannon Creek Parkway) healthy.
