Preserve Workday Planned
A workday is scheduled on Saturday, June 22 from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the Rosemont Preserve to help restore the natural habitat. Volunteers will focus on identifying and removing invasive plant species to allow room for the native flora to become reestablished, as well as some light brush clearance and trail maintenance.
Participants should wear sturdy shoes, comfortable clothes and garden gloves (long pants and sleeves are recommended). Those who have a shovel, spade, loppers or clippers should bring them along. Other tools will be available.
The Preserve is located at the north end of Rosemont Avenue in La Crescenta, just past the chain link fence. As street parking is limited, park at Two Strike Park, 5107 Rosemont Ave.
This event is free to the public, all ages, no reservations required.
For further information, please contact the Friends of the Rosemont Preserve at RosemontFriends@gmail.com.
