Mountains Restoration Trust (MRT) and Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants (TPF) are hosting a timely and innovative, self-guided tour to show how native plant landscaping can help protect properties in high-risk fire areas. The tour features three Calabasas homes, each with at least 50% California natives. Docents will be on hand to discuss design and maintenance techniques that minimize danger to the home, including plant selection and home preparation. Saturday, April 7; 10 am – 4 pm. Participants must pre-register; fee is $5. MRT is a non-profit that preserves the natural and cultural resources of the Santa Monica Mountains.
