On March 20th NBC hosted corporate sponsor Deutsche Bank at a restoration event at the Newport Valley location. Newport Valley is very important to the plants and animals that live in Upper Newport Bay. We are very thankful to have such great partners who cleared dozens of invasive species and planted roughly one hundred native Bush Sunflower, Artemisia (sage brush), Golden Bush and California Buckwheat. This is the second year that Deutsche bank has volunteered to work on this site and thanks to their help we are seeing great progress in returning this riparian area to its natural habitat. We at NBC wish to express are gratitude to all members of the Deutsche bank team.
