Stewardship is caring, but much more. It includes advocacy and activism. It means that individuals and groups exercise their responsibility to preserve, protect, and restore nature's grandeur and shape a resilient future.
Parks and open space produce health as well as economic benefits. Parks provide exercise and recreatonal benefits for all ages. They attract visitors who put new dollars into local economies. They enhance the value of residential properties and produces increased tax revenues for communities.
Open space captures precipitation, reduces stormwater management costs, and protects underground water sources, reducing the cost of drinking water.
Trees and shrubs reduce air pollution, provide shade and reduce carbon emissions. They also provide precious habitat for wild creatures and humans.
The Arroyo Seco Watershed is one of the most precious nature treasures in Southern California. Extending from the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains through the communities of Altadena, La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena, South Pasadena, Highland Park, Mount Washington, Hermon, Montecito Heights, Cypress Park and Lincoln Heights to join the Los Angeles River just north of Downtown LA.
