Benicians Adopting Benicia

BAB’s first two projects were the mid-winter beautification at the East 2nd Street and Military entranceway, as well as cleaning up of the city-owned park at St. Paul’s on First Street.

Benicians Adopting Benicia (BAB) encourages community volunteers to assist in the beautification, care, and maintenance of Benicia’s parks, playgrounds, and open space areas.

BAB maximizes our community’s resources with a focus on local care, beautification, and protecting our outdoors and facilities.

BAB identifies areas that need help to:

  • Maintain, enhance or replace plants and trees that need attention.
  • Help maintain or request a replacement of park benches and other structures.

BAB has compiled a list of people willing to help with projects and will continue to add to this list as interest and needs grow. BAB is an integral part of the Benicia Community Foundation umbrella of resources and services.

BAB works with the City on approved projects by providing additional resources to support various projects.
