I wish I had more information for you, but I just got notice and no press release with a lot of details. Altadena Heritage is putting on the discussion with 3 speakers on the importantance of Hahamonga and the Arroyo Seco river system that brings rain water from the San Gabriesl to the ocean. The speakers are:
Dave Douglas, PhD, Geologist and Dean of PCC School of Science and Mathematics
Tim Brick, Director of the Arroyo Seco Foundation
Josephine Axt, Army Corp of Engineers, Planning Division
Time is limited and the citizens in Pasadena aligned against the counties plan to rape, scrape and gut the Hahahmonga watershed need your help. All efforts to bring reason and preserve the area have fallen on deaf ears.
Somehow, somewhere, things have gotten out of hand in the Hahamonga Watershed area nestled below JPL and abutted by LaCanada and Altadena/Pasadena. After many community meetings, a questional EIR and just plain upset folks it looks like the plan to completely dredge out and obliterate every living thing is moving forward. An important natural recreation and wildlife spot will be lost if they move through with their plans.
Concerned citizens are being asked to gather on either side of the dam for a holding of the hands protest. It will take place on Saturday 12/14/2013 at a11AM. Full details on where to meet up is on the flyer you can click to embiggen. There is a FB page with more information on the protest as well as the plans by L.A. County Public Works to dredge and expand. MAP HERE
