Canyon north of the Rose Bowl is saved...

AFC has Acquired 20 Acres in Historic Rubio Canyon!

http://www.arroyosfoothills.org/

Thanks to you, in 2009, the Arroyos + Foothills Conservancy purchased 20 acres of prime habitat at the mouth of beautiful and rugged Rubio Canyon. This key parcel secures public trail access and ensures that Rubio Creek and surrounding chaparral and oak woodland right up to the Angeles National Forest will be preserved for all time. A portion of the historic Pacific Electric Railway bed, part of the famous Mt. Lowe Railway, lies on the property.

We were able to move quickly to buy this property because we had funds in the bank. Now, we need to raise additional money so AFC can be ready to move quickly the next time a conservation-minded landowner comes to us with an urgent land sale. Having money in the bank enables us to act fast when opportunities for land preservation occur. We also need to raise a modest endowment to pay for the cleanup and upkeep of the Rubio Canyon land.

You can make a secure on-line donation right now by going to http://www.arroyosfoothills.org/support.html.
