Folks, spreading the word:

Mañana – Thursday March 15, North East Trees celebrates the grand opening of the Garvanza stormwater park.  9 am, 6240 Meridian Street, LA 90042.  Congrats!

Next Thursday, March 22, Town Hall-LA is hosting a symposium titled:  Dry Winter?  Where Will Our Water Come From? with panelists including environmental experts Mark Gold (UCLA) and Tracey Egoscue (Egoscue Law Group), and water and agency managers Brendan Goshi (MWD) and Adel Hagekhalil (City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation).  In addition to the panel there will be speakers offering their thoughts on the subject:  James Clark (Black & Veatch), Andy Lipkis (Tree People), James Yanotta (LADWP), and Mike Antos (Council for Watershed Health).  Check it out here!

Also, site visits led by Long Beach city councilman James Johnson out at the former Willow Springs Gulch site continue – every 3rd Saturday at 10 AM.  Check out this nice video featuring my former student Merilee Atkinson, a docent at the site.

    Very cool video. Wish they had done a close up of the willows rather than the non-native, somewhat invasive tree tobacco. Jessica, how can I contact Merilee. The start of their park, 4 acres, is similar to our 3 acre nature park in South Pas, next to 110 freeway and Arroyo Seco. I’m interested in hearing about what they plan to do first.
