Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, California

Light Brown Apple Moth Quarantine

If you are a home fruit or vegetable gardener, it's always tempting to give surplus fruits and vegetables to friends and neighbors. Unwittingly, you might be helping spread an agricultural pest that has invaded our area, the light brown apple moth. Much of Rancho Bernardo and Poway is within a quarantine area, so check out the quarantine boundary before giving away produce. Click here for specific information and maps.

Diane was recently honored at the annual "Hats Off to Volunteers" event, recognizing individuals and organizations for their contributions to the community.

The ceremony was held at the Rancho Bernardo High School auditorium, and a party given afterwards at Jeanne Greene's home.

"Hats Off to Volunteers" was established in 2010.
