AHS May 14 Millard Canyon Talk

Even if you aren't an avid outdoors hiker, if you live near the San Gabriel Mountains you probably know of Millard Canyon. Covered by a canopy of at least nine species of native trees, habitat to countless birds and other wildlife, the canyon serves as a wildlife corridor for the large mammal species that live in the foothills.  Millard Creek is a year-round stream that  feeds the area as well.

There is a good possibility that 13 acres in the canyon, north of Canyon Crest Road, can be saved from development.  

Come to the May 14th  ALTADENA HISTORICAL SOCIETY program and hear author, historian and outdoor enthusiast Elizabeth Pomeroy speak about the past and future of our beloved canyon.  

In addition, Elizabeth and Conservancy president John Howell will invite you to take a hike on May 19 and personally experience this 13 acre parcel.  The hike will be led by experts in biology, geology, history or hydrology.  Learn how the Altadena Crest Trail will be extended through the well-publicized "La Vina gap.”
