Meiners Oaks residents and visitors to the Ojai Meadows Preserve may have noticed Ventura artist M.B. Hanrahan hard at work on a mural outside Meiners Oaks Elementary School.
Though Hanrahan is doing the painting, the mural is the brainchild of Meiners Oaks students.
Students have studied Ojai's native flora and fauna as they work with teachers and administrators to transform portions of the schoolyard into a native garden.
