This is the inspiring story of the restoration of the Arroyo Seco, a major tributary of the Los Angeles River that flows from the San Gabriel Mountains to downtown Los Angeles. This video documents the Central Arroyo Stream Restoration Program, a program of the Arroyo Seco Foundation in collaboration with the City of Pasadena, that reintroduced the native Arroyo Chub fish into the stream near the world-famous Rose Bowl. This is the first native fish restoration in Southelements ern California. Trail and parking lot enhancements were two other important of the program to improve water quality and recreational opportunities in the area.
