Join us on February 18, 2023. We will be preparing for a Garden Tour, Plant Swap, & Environmental Fair to be held at the park on March 18, 2023 from 1 to 4 PM. Friends of South Pasadena Nature Park is collaborating with South Pasadena Beautiful and the South Pasadena Natural Resources and Sustainability Fair Commission on this exciting event. We will spend the next two Volunteer Days (Feb 18 and March 18, 9-noon) sprucing up the park so members of the community will see just how wonderful this place is.

- 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

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.
