Cleaning Up the Arroyo Stream
There's a lot of opportunities to be good stewards of the watershed and our local environment.


The Arroyo Seco is a key tributary of the Los Angeles River connecting the San Gabriel Mountains to downtown Los Angeles through the communities of Pasadena, Altadena, La Canada Flintridge, South Pasadena and northeast Los Angeles.

We need help to develop ongoing funding for our work supporting local efforts to protect and restore the Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River River. We have a native plant nursery and also conduct lots of educational activities. So we have a great story to tell funders such as businesses, foundations and governmental agencies.

Volunteer Role & Responsibilities: You can help by researching funding opportunities and preparing applications and proposals. We are a volunteer-centered organization, so your help will be especially valuable. Grant writers will help with finding possible donors and writing grant proposals. This is a perfect opportunity for someone who would like to develop and apply their skills at grant writing, research and fundraising. You can set your own schedule and share in other activities of the foundation as well.

Requirements: Basic writing and research skills are required and a desire to develop fundraising and grant experience.

Please send your bio and cover letter that let's us know why you want to get involved.

Thanks for your interest and support.
