On Sunday, the Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter will launch its new Lawn Patrol/Neighborhood Walk Program to help people identify what does and does not make an Ocean Friendly Garden.

Those interested in seeing a garden that Surfrider volunteers helped install should meet at 9:45 a.m. at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, 5627 La Jolla Blvd.) to sign in. The 90-minute, half-mile walk will start about 10 a.m. Walkers should be a slight elevation change, but not a steep course, and there will be many stops, according to a Surfrider press release.

The release describes the gardens as those designed to “apply CPR to revive our watersheds and oceans: Conservation, Permeability and Retention.”

If Surfrider officials spot a garden that fits their standards, they’ll leave a note telling them homeowners can get an OFG sign.

“Lawn Patrol should be a fun and interactive way to learn how to identify what makes a garden ocean friendly and then do it yourself, go to an OFG Class or hire someone to help you,” Rexi Dayes from SurfriderSD Ocean Friendly Gardens program said in the release. “The ocean is downhill from everywhere so we need to keep the water clean starting at home.”

RSVP is suggested but not required.  RSVP or get more information by e- mailing ofg@surfriderSD.org
