Arroyo Seco Foundation
April 22, 2010

During my year-long employment at the Arroyo Seco Foundation I advanced two specific, complementary programs of the organization with Executive Director Tim Brick. I feel that both of the programs had a very positive effect on the communities within the Arroyo Seco watershed that will be appreciated for years to come. First, I worked on the Central Arroyo Seco stream restoration program. Not only did the stream restoration maintain and strengthen one of the most beautiful waterways within the City of Pasadena, the program emphasized public awareness and community involvement. We worked particularly hard on including all potential interest groups and alerting the public to the ongoing benefits to be realized. Second, I worked as a general outreach coordinator for the Arroyo Seco Foundation watershed coordinator program. In comparison to the more site-specific stream restoration program, the watershed coordinator program took a broad view in analyzing current water uses throughout the entire watershed and ways in which all people could contribute to the water problems facing Southern California. The Arroyo Seco Foundation takes a progressive view of implementing positive change for water rights within Southern California by working on diverse levels with all interested groups. By spreading the message of wise water use and environmental values throughout an arid region, the Arroyo Seco Foundation is effecting positive change for Southern California.
