Protect City Trees!

protect_city_trees

TreePeople, an organization that helps bring trees to Los Angeles to increase our urban canopy, has asked us to share something with you.  The content below is copied and pasted from their website. Have you heard? Last summer, TreePeople championed the protection of our urban trees as the City of LA prepared to launch its 30-year sidewalk repair program. Now, LA is starting to roll out steps to repair sidewalks across the region. That’s right–  over the next 30 years, the City plans to spend $1.4 billion dollars after a city settlement to make our sidewalks more accessible for all Angelenos. A large piece of this effort will likely involve removing many street trees– trees that provide shade and cool spaces. We at TreePeople fully support repairing our city sidewalks so they’re accessible for all Angelenos– but we also know the public health impacts if we sacrifice our trees.

FLASH Clean-Up: This Saturday!

nov19_flash_cleanup_flyer

There’s a flash clean-up happening at the North Glassell Park monument in the median on Eagle Rock Blvd, put together by the GPIA (Glassell Park Improvement Association).  The text of the flyer is copied/pasted below, and you can also click on the image below the text to view a larger copy of the flyer. The Glassell Park Improvement Association invites you to help clean up and replant around the North monument in the median on Eagle Rock Blvd. at Lincoln Avenue (1 block south of York Blvd.) The “Flash Cleanup” idea is to give a short time–45 minutes–that won’t get in the way of our busy weekends. We come together, care for our community, finish and go. The more people who show up the more we can accomplish. Please join us at the North monument, and don’t forget to bring your own sun protection, work gloves and water. Contact Jim Kiehl (jekiehl@earthlink.net) to RSVP or to join our team for future clean ups. We are working with CD14, to arrange for pickup of ...
