Rosemont Preserve Restoration Day

The community is invited to help protect the natural habitat at the Rosemont Preserve. On Saturday, Aug. 8 from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. volunteers will be working to stabilize slopes where some critters have been digging and eroding the hillside. Earth and mulch will be moved and jute netting on the south slope will be installed. The demonstration garden area around the outdoor classroom will also be weeded.

Volunteers should wear sturdy shoes, comfortable clothes and garden gloves (long pants and sleeves are recommended). Those who have them should bring shovels, five-gallon buckets and hammers.

The Preserve is located at the north end of Rosemont Avenue, just past the chain link fence. As street parking is limited, please park at Two Strike Park, 5107 Rosemont Ave.

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

Glendale Beautiful Hosting Fundraiser

Glendale Beautiful invites the community to its 65th annual fall dinner on Wednesday, Sept. 9 starting at 5:30 p.m. Come for good company, tasty appetizers and fun music, followed by dinner at 6 p.m. in the courtyard of the Casa Adobe de San Rafael, 1330 Dorothy Dr., Glendale. In case of rain the event will be moved to the Glendale Civic Auditorium, 1401 N. Verdugo Ave., Glendale.

The evening will feature a presentation on Glendale’s “Space 134,” an exciting project in its initial concept phase envisioning a “freeway cap park” over the 134 Freeway from Central Avenue to Glendale Avenue. The freeway cap park would connect the community to the city’s civic, cultural, and business core through public open space, as well as to pedestrian and bike-friendly trails.

The cost is $30 per person. There will be opportunity prizes; tickets are $1 each, 6 for $5. Funds raised will help support the Glendale Beautiful docent program at the Casa Adobe de San Rafael.

Please RSVP by Sept. 2 to Sharon Weisman, (818) 248-4967 or email
