Native Plants at the Rosemont Preserve

The next docent-led tour of the Rosemont Preserve will be on Saturday, June 27 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Roger Klemm will lead the walk focusing on native plants.

Klemm is a software engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and has been involved with various community groups promoting conservation and environmentally sensible landscaping for over 20 years. He has renovated community and school gardens, planted trees in local parks, and is introducing native plants on the campus where he works, also known as “guerilla gardening.” He is involved with the eradication of invasive exotic plants in the Angeles National Forest and at the Rosemont Preserve, and is spearheading the renovation of a community entrance garden at Sunland Boulevard and the 210 freeway in Sunland.

The Preserve is located at the north end of Rosemont Avenue, just past the chain link fence. As street parking is limited, attendees are asked to park at Two Strike Park, 5107 Rosemont Ave. in La Crescenta. Wear strudy shoes for walking the trail.

This event is free to the public and suitable for all ages, no reservations required. Rain cancels event. Sorry, no pets please.
