Arroyo Seco Stream Team

Stream Team

The Stream Team is ASF's volunteer corps. Stream Team members participate in all kinds of volunteer activies, so we're sure you will find participation fun and fulfilling.

We encourage beginners to get involved, and we also need more experienced volunteers who can take on a leadership role. Some of these activities include representating ASF at community events, leading tours and educational programs, and monitoring water quality. The Stream Team is great for students or anyone looking to get a more in-depth understanding of watershed management and the environment.

The Stream Team holds meetings where volunteers can learn more about upcoming projects, watershed management, and share their ideas for the Arroyo. Everyone is welcome to attend these meetings.

Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery

We need your help at the new Hahamongna nursery! We propagate native trees and plants, pot up seedlings, and there's always more weeding to tackle. Then we head out into the Arroyo Seco Canyon to use the plants in a stream restoration program.

Native plants -- like oaks, willows, laurel sumac, buckwheat and scores of other species -- are vital to the Arroyo stream and to our local environment. They provide the habitat and conditions for wildlife and a healthy ecosystem. You will be able to learn about these plants and their importance in preserving and enhancing our communities and the environment. You'll learn the importance of stewardship and "giving back," while you watch your plants grow and thrive.

This kind of stewardship is the path to preserve the past and to ensure a future of a healthy land, water and air for current and future generations. And it's a lot of fun and very rewarding. Come share in this great program.

Event Coordination

The Arroyo Seco Foundation puts on a variety of activities and events during the year including environmental festivals, stream-cleanups, tree-planting activities, bike rides and educational programs. We are looking for detail-oriented individual who is skilled at preparing fun and meaningful events.

We will work with the event coordinator to plan and stage events and to evaluate success afterwards.

We expect the event coordinator to be well-organized and competent in working with vendors, participants and other volunteers. Communication skills and attention to detail will set apart the best among the candidates. Enthusiasm and passion for the job and for the environment will make you the ideal candidate.

The goal is to organize unforgettable events that will ensure the entertainment of participants and facilitate the completion of our environmental objectives.
