Nature Park Volunteer Day
Apr 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
This month, we will continue to work on the irrigation system for the new Demonstration Garden. The garden was planted during the January Planting Party and we began to install the irrigation in February. The system will be used for a year or two, until the plants become established and can survive on natural rainfall. This is a good time to come to the park if you are interested in learning about how to set up a similar system for your home garden.
- Wear sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
- Bring water
- Bring gardening gloves and tools (weeders, trowels, whatever you use in your own garden), there are extra tools and gloves for those who need them
- Wear comfortable work clothes, including work shoes (sneakers or boots) and long pants
- Bring binoculars for birdwatching (optional)
Children must be under adult supervision at all times. There is poison oak in the park that we will point out before starting. If you are planning to bring more than five in a group, please email me so we can be sure to have enough tools (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The South Pas Nature Park is a four-acre habitat park along the Arroyo Seco. The entrance, marked by a small plaque on an attractive river rock wall, is in the 100 block of Pasadena Avenue in South Pasadena, east of the York Street Bridge. There is plenty of on-street parking on Pasadena Avenue.
The park is graced with mature coast live oaks, southern walnuts and western sycamores. Planted with sage, buckwheat and other native coastal sage scrub plants, the park provides an inviting environment for birds, lizards, squirrels and numerous other critters. Locals too enjoy walking, jogging and horseback riding through the park.
