What's the Rosemont Preserve?

A vital piece of protected wilderness in our community that needs OUR help! Conservation and caring for our natural world are a fundamental part of Cub Scouting. Come along and do a good turn!

History of the Rosemont Preserve:
"Working with the Crescenta Valley community, the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy preserved 7.75 acres of wilderness land at the top of Rosemont Avenue in June of 2012, saving the land from development and turning it into a permanent sanctuary for wildlife.
The Preserve is located at northern end of Rosemont Avenue, in the mouth of Goss Canyon. It is backed by about 300 acres that have been maintained as mostly wilderness over the years by private landowners.
The land provides habitat for a number of wildlife species, including mule deer, bobcats, mountain lions, bears, coyotes and endangered Arroyo toads.
Preserving this land effectively doubles the amount of available green space in La Crescenta.
A volunteer community advisory group, the Friends of the Rosemont Preserve, has been formed to help steward the land and develop educational programs for the community."
