US Army Corps to Present Arroyo Seco Study
|January 20, 2012 - "Arroyo Seco Foundation is initiating a new type of event highlighting distinctive topics of significance in the communities of the Arroyo Seco."|
|The Arroyo Seco Foundation will host its first Watershed Breakfast at the University Club in Pasadena on Wednesday, January 25 to highlight the US Army Corps of Engineers ecosystem study of the Arroyo Seco and its potential for restoration.|
The US Army Corps of Engineers has been working with local partners in recent years to develop a ecosystem study of the Arroyo Seco, which will prepare the way for some very significant restoration projects to enhance water, wildlife and habitat in the Arroyo Seco Watershed. In August the Corps released a key study of Arroyo Seco issues, the “Arroyo Seco Watershed Ecosystem Restoration Study.”
This study presents important analysis and planning tools for an environmentally sensitive restoration program for the Arroyo Seco and the groundwork for many exciting integrated projects to enhance the Arroyo. Local partners in the study include the County of Los Angeles and the cities of Pasadena, Los Angeles, South Pasadena and La Cañada Flintridge.
The Watershed Breakfast will feature the scientists and planners from the Army Corps who put the study together, introduced by Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard. The event will be held at the University Club of Pasadena, 175 N. Oakland Avenue in Pasadena beginning at 7:30 am and ending promptly at 9:00 am. Breakfast will be served; admission is $25.
Media representatives and the public are invited at attend for an informative and exciting look at the future of the Arroyo. Advance reservations are requested and can be made at www.arroyoseco.org/breakfast.htm More information about the study and links to the document can be found at that site.
