Nature Park Volunteer Day
Jun 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
June will be be our last organized Volunteer Day until next fall, September 16, 2023. We will focus on removing weeds, especially those that have not set seed yet – pulling one of these can save us from having to pulling hundreds more next season! We will remove trash, clear the paths, prune, and water young plants.
Even though we won’t be meeting during the summer, please stop by to enjoy the park, and pull a few weeds or pick up some litter while you are there.
- 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.
