Sept. 22: AFC to present open-space opportunity to Crescenta Valley Town Council

On Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7 p.m., AFC will make a brief presentation to the Crescenta Valley Town Council and the La Crescenta community about a key piece of wilderness land the conservancy is seeking to save.

The 7.75-acre open space parcel is situated at the top of Rosemont Avenue, in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. Acquiring the land would secure the mouth of Goss Canyon, preventing the 7.75 acres from being developed and ensuring habitat for wildlife. AFC would also work with property owners and other stakeholders, including the Crescenta Valley Town Council, to determine how best to provide public access to the land, which features a hiking trail.

The 7.75-acre property in La Crescenta, at the top of Rosemont Ave. in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, is outlined in green.

We encourage members of the local community who are interested in this project to attend the council meeting. The meeting will be held in the community room of the La Crescenta library, located at the intersection of Foothill Blvd. and La Crescenta Ave. in La Crescenta.

Audubon, REI to help fund Rubio projects

REI volunteers clear a trail in Rubio Canyon on National Trails Day (June 4). Photo by Paul Ayers.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.

Thanks to REI and Pasadena Audubon for their commitment to local land conservation!
