Projects to build trails and restore habitat in Rubio Canyon have received big boosts with grants from the Pasadena Audubon Society and REI.
The Pasadena Audubon Society generated $4,713.72 in a fundraising campaign for trails in Rubio Canyon -- money that will go toward restoring the nearly five miles of trails in Rubio Canyon and opening those trails to the public. The Audubon grant will supplement a previous $20,000 grant from Southern California Edison for the trail restoration project.
The Pasadena Audubon Society and Audubon California both made significant contributions to preserve Rubio Canyon, as well.
REI awarded its grant of $5,000 on July 12 to enable AFC to set up and oversee a volunteer program to remove invasive plants along trails in Rubio Canyon. REI also co-hosted, with AFC, a volunteer day in the canyon in June.
