Green Fun and Good Exercise

Lynnette Kampe

On the third Saturday of each month, come enjoy the company of your neighbors and the peaceful connection with nature by helping to preserve and enhance one of our most special Mount Washington green places.

Easy Wild Flowers for Fall Sowing

Lynnette Kampe

California poppies top the list and I’ll bring some seed packets to the next meeting, free while they last to those who attend. Other easy favorites for sunny spots are tall, pink and salmon colored Farewell-to-Spring (Clarkia unguiculata), the familiar blue spiked flowers of Arroyo Lupine, (Lupinus succulentus), and Caterpillar Flower (Phacelia cicutaria) with funny, fuzzy, curled lavender flower stems, hence the name. A petite charmer, with starling baby blue flowers is Baby Blue Eyes, (Nemophila menziesii), which likes a bit of shade. These were all were once common on Mount Washington and could return again with a little care.

Tree of Heaven Abatement

Jerry Schneider

It is an invasive pest plant, causing many problems for local properties and in our natural open space parks. We have copies of a brochure that helps to identify and discuss this pest plant. The Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, starting last fall and continuing in this fiscal year, is providing funding to have Tree of Heaven plants chemically treated by a licensed professional herbicide applicator in public parks and rights of way within the Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council boundaries.

Cleland Ave. and Jessica Dr. Median Garden and Oak Trees Saved

It took a conference of City officials and employees with our community volunteers to bring about a change in a sewer project that will spare the garden and Oak Trees in the intersection median at Cleland Avenue and Jessica Drive. We need to thank Board of Public Works Commission President, Cynthia Ruiz, who chaired and facilitated the meeting and Council Member Jose Huizar and his field deputy, Amy Yaegar, who came to the aide of concerned Mount Washington community members.
