February 2 - It was a packed house at the Pasadena Museum of History last night for an exiting forum on the future of the Arroyo Seco. Five panelists presented their views on prospects for our region's greatest natural treasure. They called for a nature-based approach, a watershed approach, to protecting and restoring that great canyon that links the San Gabriel Mountains to downtown Los Angeles.
Tim Brick, Executive Director of the Stewards of the Arroyo, announced that the Los Angeles County Flood Control District is moving forward to reiniate the long-delayed Arroyo Seco Ecosystem Restoration Program. That program, which an ongoing collaborative effort involving the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Arroyo cities, and community organizations, will address environmental and water resource issues in the Arroyo Seco Watershed to develope a plan to protect and restore nature in the Arroyo.
