The Arroyo Seco Foundation — Who We Are
The Arroyo Seco Foundation (ASF) was founded by Charles Lummis more than one hundred years ago to promote the preservation and promotion of the Arroyo Seco, one of Southern California’s greatest natural treasures.
After a lapse of many decades, the Arroyo Seco Foundation was revived in 1989 to continue that vision. Since then we have planted several thousand native trees in the Arroyo, participated in and led major Arroyo planning efforts, educated the public about the riches of the Arroyo, and most importantly worked to restore and enhance the natural splendor of the Arroyo for future generations.
The Arroyo Seco
The Arroyo Seco has been called the most celebrated canyon in Southern California. This spectacular corridor with a gentle river flowing through it links downtown Los Angeles with Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley.
The Arroyo Seco is ideally suited to feature a bicycle path as viable transporation alternative. It’s a gentle downhill ride of about ten miles from Pasadena to the downtown Los Angeles filled with scenic hightlights and cultural landmarks. The path would parallel the Gold Line train with six nearby stations so that bike riders take the train one way and ride the other in the spectacular natural setting of the Arroyo Seco.
It’s a fun, refreshing and healthy alternative to freeway congestion.
