Rosemont Preserve Tour

Aug 19, 2017

Cassey Aoyagi is eager to show off the Rosemont Preserve. On August 26, don your hiking boots, slap your hat on, and head up to La Crescenta/Montrose for a free tour.

Aoyagi is the president of FormLA Landscaping and she leads the way, including sharing with attendees a “space recently reclaimed from invasive plant species in an effort to prevent fire and slides.” Aoyagi discusses how to stabilize a slope, which native plants resist fire, the importance of “beauty authentic to its place,” and “how to keep popular natives happy.”
