Berkshire Creek Groundbreaking Ceremony to Take Place Thursday

PASADENA, Calif.—Mayor Terry Tornek and Vice Mayor Tyron Hampton will officiate the groundbreaking ceremony for the Berkshire Creek Restoration Project Thursday, Sept. 26, at 10 a.m.

The project is an urban streams restoration program that will upgrade habitat, improve public safety, and restore a more natural hydrology to Berkshire Creek, which flows into the Arroyo Seco just north of Devil's Gate Dam. The Arroyo Seco Foundation, the project's cosponsor with the City of Pasadena Public Works Department, will grow most the plants for the habitat restoration component in nearby Hahamongna Native Plant Nursery.

Thursday's event will include exhibits, light refreshments, and a walk-through of the project site.
