During Wilderness Workday in Deukmejian Wilderness Park, community members can help water big cone spruce and coast live oaks, assist with trail repairs and remove invasive plants from the park on Saturday, July 15, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
It is recommended that those in attendance wear sturdy shoes and protective clothing and bring water. Participation in Wilderness Workday can be applied toward community service hour requirements for families, individuals, clubs and students.
On Friday, Aug. 25, Trails & Open Spaces will present a Friday night lecture, “CHiPs in La Crescenta,” from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Local filmmaker John Newcombe has compiled a narrated film about the half-century old TV series “CHiPs” and its history of filming in La Crescenta. To RSVP for this event, visit glendaleca.gov/trails.
Community members also have the opportunity to become a Trail Safety Patrol volunteer for the city of Glendale. TSP volunteers have a unique opportunity to assist Glendale by providing public assistance and resource protection. The TSP volunteers’ influence on park visitors will enhance the experience and safety of others in Glendale parks.
The TSP consists of two units: The Mountain Bike Unit and the Hike Unit. TSP volunteers must be 18 years old, undergo a background check and city-mandated trail safety training, be in good health and devote a minimum of four hours per month.
