Alumni—along with family, friends, faculty. staff and current AULA students—gathered at Kenneth Hahn State Park in Culver City for a beautification project. The community-wide event was hosted by Mujeres de la Tierra, a local organization that teaches women and their children to take leadership roles in their community.

Volunteers put on work gloves, grabbed shovels and pitchforks, and planted trees and shrubs along the eastern ridge of the park. Alumni were asked to name the trees they planted; trees were named in honor of Antioch College alumna Coretta Scott King, and AULA alumna and faculty member Nancy Fawcett, who passed away last year.
