Berkshire Creek

The Berkshire Creek project is now complete and ready for your enjoyment! The area has been temporarily closed due to health restrictions, but be sure to come when Hahamongna Watershed Park opens again. It's a sign of good things in store for Hahamongna and the Arroyo Seco.

ASF was busy planning the official grand opening along with the City of Pasadena when the Stay Home orders were issued, so that event has now been postponed. We will let you when things open up again.

All About Berkshire Creek

John Muir Comes Alive in Millard Canyon

ASF's Managing Director Tim Brick has prepared a remarkable portrayal of the great environmentalist John Muir. The dramatic monologue was presented recently to a class of Dr. Dianne Philibosian's from Cal State Northridge. It covers the famed naturalist's life and lessons, including a lot about his local links.

Enjoy Nature — But Stay Safe

The CV-19 pandemic has hit Arroyo Seco communities hard, so we strongly support the stay-at-home and social distancing measures. Human health has got to be the first priority.

Hopefully your stay-at-home time will give you a special opportunity to tend your garden. And it is a good time to commune with nature, but keep your distance and stay safe. Millard Canyon and Switzer's Camp in the Upper Arroyo along with most of the trails in the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains have been closed until further notice.

Spring Is Awaiting You @Hahamongna Nursery

Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery has never looked finer than now. Spring blossoms are everywhere!

Due to the health restrictions, we are now developing a way to make the plants available to you in a way that is safe for you and for our volunteers.

We are exploring a drive-through process that will avoid contact. We'll let you know when that becomes available.
