East Fork PerspectiveWHAT: “Transforming Recreation Along the San Gabriel River.” Join us to learn about the remarkable East Fork Project, which promises to transform recreation and environmental protection along a much-visited 2.5 mile stretch of the San Gabriel River.

WHEN: Wednesday, January 27, 7 p.m.

WHERE: Eaton Canyon Nature Center (1750 N. Altadena Dr., Pasadena)

WHO: Hosted by San Gabriel Mountains Forever and the Forest Committee of the Angeles Chapter of Sierra Club.

Our main speaker is Rob Romanek, Project Manager for the Watershed Conservation Authority, who is heading up the East Fork Project. Rob will let us know how we can become involved to make sure that the project meets its full potential. Opening the evening’s program will be Belinda Faustinos, chair of San Gabriel Mountains Forever, who will provide an overview of how the East Fork Project fits into the larger mosaic of San Gabriel Mountain enhancements.

MORE: National Forest recreation areas along the majestic San Gabriel River north of Azusa have been neglected for decades. They lack basic amenities like safe river access, adequate trash pickup, clean restrooms, and bilingual visitor education. But with the designation of the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument, things are changing.

A social reception with the speaker at 7 p.m. precedes the 7:30 p.m. program sponsored by the Forest Committee of the Sierra Club’s Angeles Chapter. The program is free and the public is welcome.
