That cathartic feeling of making a beautiful area even more wonderful is something that Euclid Analytics just gets. On a glistening Thursday morning the Euclid team joined up with Golden Gate National Parks to make the Sutro Heights entrance a cleaner, more welcoming gateway to Ocean Beach.
The Sutro Heights are the first glimpse of the magic that awaits on Ocean Beach; however, it is also the last stop on the ever so popular 38 bus stop. Due to the coincidence of the bus route, there is a cornucopia of litter that accumulates in the flower bed of the Heights. The park also needed a good weeding of invasive plants that were cannibalizing local flora.
Euclid Analytics values the San Francisco community, and the Sutro Garden is an integral piece of that community. Many Euclideans visit Sutro to relax on the weekend, and we felt this was the perfect place to make a meaningful impact on our quarterly Day of Service. Not to mention, it was the day before Earth Day, so the stars really aligned.
Yes, there were tons of bus tickets, a few water bottles, and even a trash picker upper (…that we picked up with OUR trash picker-upper. Turns out, Euclideans are fans of irony), but with a bit of hard work we were able to transform the area. The true heroes, however, were our hosts from Golden Gate National Parks. They guided us through what we should pull and what we should leave (turns out pulling a California Poppy is NOT okay!), and it was clear how much then enjoyed making the garden a more beautiful place.
