Thanks to Jane here in The Meadows, we now have a wonderful new Smokey the Bear sign on lower Canyon Crest. In addition, Woodsy Owl makes an appearance on the back of the sign.
The original Smokey the Bear sign had seen better days. It was the desire of many here in The Meadows to replace it with a restored version. With the approval of local authorities, Jane volunteered to recreate the sign with the original design since pre-made versions are no longer available.
Woodsy Owl makes its appearance to remind everyone about keeping the canyon pristine and free of trash.
A BIG thank you to Jane!

The Altadena Community Garden is a non-profit organization that provides gardening space, information and education to Garden members and the local community. We believe that growing nutritional food and working outdoors in a group setting promotes healthy minds, spirits, and bodies. The Garden honors and appreciates the diversity, unique qualities, and cultural ideas of our gardeners and the community. By growing fresh food and tending the Garden together, we support harmony, cooperation, and healthy life choices for residents of Los Angeles County.

The public is invited to join employees of the Department of Parks and Recreation to donate blood at this County-sponsored Red Cross blood drive. Prospective donors can sign up for an appointment online at:
It is expected that the grant work, which will mainly include tree and brush removal, will begin as early as August.
"Considering the rich artistic history and heritage of the Arroyo Seco/Millard Canyon area, we thought it might be nice to have a "Millard Canyon Arts Festival" in Loma Alta Park in the area next to the community garden as a way of promoting the arts and artists in the surrounding community.
"We would like to have artists and craftspeople set up booths to sell their work, food vendors and perhaps live performances during a Spring or early Summer weekend (at this point we are looking at 2010, and hoping it might develop into an annual event).
"We think there is also room to include several other elements of the community who may wish to participate with informational booths or activities , such as conservation organizations, trail groups, equestrians, service groups, law enforcement/public safety, etc.
"We are just in the early formative stages so I thought I would tell a few friends and ask what you think about this idea and if you have any suggestions. If you would like to be involved or if you know anyone who would like to be involved, please let us know and pass this info along.
We hope to arrange a public meeting soon to discuss this proposal."
