Mission Statement

The mission of the Arroyo Seco Foundation is to preserve and enhance the Arroyo Seco from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Los Angeles River, reforest our region and promote environmental and cultural awareness of one of Southern California's greatest natural resources.

Description

The Arroyo Seco Foundation (ASF) is dedicated to protecting and promoting the Arroyo Seco watershed. ASF advocates an integrated, harmonious approach to watershed and flood management, water conservation, habitat enhancement as well as the expansion of recreational opportunities. Through action projects, recreation and environmental awareness activities, ASF strives to involve the residents and organizations in our region in this tremendous enterprise. ASF works to reforest the Arroyo Seco, the San Gabriel Mountains and the neighboring urban landscape with native shrubs and trees.
