July 14, 2012 Sat Crescenta Valley Group
O: Hike to a stream, brunch, and a little tree care
Party time!! The annual Crescenta Valley Group picnic will take place on Sat July 14th in Deukmejian Park. The short hike of about 2- 3 miles, 500 ft gain will start at 8am and meander from new tree to new tree until we get to a lovely stream.
See, we planted conifers here a few months back, and periodically we come visit and water them, and show them we care. So bring an empty 1/2 gallon to gallon bottle or two with you - we will use this to water some new trees, refill at the stream, and bring back the juice of life to the other newly planted trees. Kids with their parents are more than welcome. They will definitely like the water and the stream. Wildflowers are quite abundant after the wildfires, so more beauty to check out.
At about 9am we will have brunch, continental style, topped off with fruits and sweets. Coloring station, tattoos and possibly other crafts will await the kids after their sugar high. Find out all the fun activities we have for you in the Sierra Club in the next few months.
Meet new people, visit with old friends or just come to eat with us. This event is open to the public and there is no admission cost. So bring your friends. For directions, exit the 210 Freeway at Pennsylvania Ave. toward La Crescenta, turn left onto Foothill Blvd., turn right onto New York Ave., turn left onto Markridge and right on Dunsmore and right into park headquarters.
