New Look

We're Getting a Face Lift!

Painted Lath House
With the help of the men from Beacon House, the appearance as you walk into the center has changed dramatically.  If you haven't been to the center lately, The barn, green house, front fence, and rooster cages have been repaired, painted, and made to look amazing.

Prepping for Paint
Adding the Trim
Beacon House was awarded a grant from the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation to help us improve and beautify the Christensen Science Center. The grant allows Beacon House the opportunity to improve our "curb appeal" by providing the funds to purchase materials and supplies to make repairs at the center for the students of the Los Angeles Unified School District and the community.

Building new rooster cages

The men from Beacon House have been impressive.  They have participated in the monthly clean up days, built and installed 16 new garden boxes, repaired and prepped structures for painting, and built and updated cages for many of our hens and roosters.

And the work they do is gorgeous!

Completed Rooster Cages
And more changes are on the way.  The albino squirrel is getting a new home and many more improvements are being made to the big chicken pen and the pony shelter.

Come on in and see the changes
