An “open gate” event is taking place at the Rosemont Preserve on Saturday morning, July 6. This is a chance for residents to visit the Preserve and wander the trail at their own pace and enjoy the tranquil setting, the wildlife and the natural beauty. Photographers: bring your camera to capture the morning light and citizen scientists, bring your iNaturalist and Merlin apps to identify birds and add wildlife sightings!

The gate will be open from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., and Friends of the Rosemont Preserve Committee members will be available to answer questions and present this community resource.

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. Those with mobility issues who require a closer parking spot should contact the Rosemont Preserve Committee.

Those planning on walking the trails should wear sturdy shoes and bring water to drink.  

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

Recreation Area Closed

California State Parks announced the temporary full closure of the Hungry Valley State Vehicular Recreation Area (SVRA) in Southern California due to extensive damage caused by the Post Fire. The closure went in effect on June 17. The wildfire, which started on June 15, burned through large swathes of the park in Los Angeles and Ventura counties, impacting the SVRA’s infrastructure and resources and leading to hazardous conditions. State Parks strongly advises the public not to enter the park, which will remain closed until further notice.

SCE Plans Maintenance on Local Lines

Routine maintenance will soon be performed on the electrical equipment in the local area. To keep crews safe, it is necessary to temporarily turn off power so upgrades can be installed or repairs made to the grid.

Acknowledging that having power shut off is inconvenient, SCE is attempting to isolate outages to the smallest area possible in order to complete the work safely and to promptly restore power.
