We Love Open Space!

Pasadena residents and visitors have enjoyed the great outdoors for well over a century, and the conservation of our natural resources has been equally high on the priority list.



On Saturday, Feb. 28, come to Pasadena City Hall for a very special event in the courtyard (or in the grand entrance if it's drizzling) from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

This is the kick-off the update of the Open Space and Conservation Element of the General Plan, which will set goals and priorities for the future of our natural resources.

You’ll examine maps and exhibits, meet one-on-one with city leaders and visit with like-minded residents.

Will Rogers, president of The Trust for Public Land, will be the guest speaker, and there will be exhibits and children’s activities.

Visit www.cityofpasadena.net/openspace to find the Open Space and Conservation Committee's agendas, minutes and backup materials as well as draft maps, a work plan and other important documents. You’ll also find links to other cities and organizations that are doing inspiring work in this field.

Will this exhibit be around for awhile?

Any word on the chip/mulch locations?
