A 30-acre parcel adjoining Pasadena and La Cañada, known as the Hahamongna annex, has been the topic for much debate over the nine years since Pasadena regained ownership of it. Pasadena sold the property to the Metropolitan Water District, and then bought it back for $1.2 million when MWD planners decided the property wasn?t needed for a settling basin. The 30 acres lying between the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Devil?s Gate Dam have been the subject of numerous meetings and planning sessions involving stakeholders from La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and Altadena.

The city of Pasadena and the National Park Service will present the results of a series of planning sessions to determine the future of 30 acres of park land located between La Cañada Flintridge and Pasadena. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 20, at Eaton Canyon Nature Center, 1750 N. Altadena Drive. The property, known as the Hahamongna annex, was formerly owned by the Metropolitan Water District and sold to Pasadena in November of 2005. It currently houses stables for Rose Bowl Riders, a county fire camp and the Tom Sawyer camp, along with a grove of oak trees known by many as "the enchanted forest."

Rangers who work in the Angeles National Forest and the volunteers who support them deserve a tip of the hat for opening a huge swath of forest this weekend, less than three years after the Station fire ravaged the front range of the San Gabriel Mountains. More than 41,000 acres below the Big Tujunga Dam, a huge area upslope from La Cañada Flintridge, are open again for hiking and camping. But much cleanup work remains, as 46,000 acres are still off limits. Angeles National Forest Supervisor Thomas Contreras sounded plaintive in his talk with conservationists and volunteers last week at the Eaton Canyon Nature Center, both asking for more volunteer support and admitting the tasks remaining are stretching staff resources.

Two men were rescued by a search team Thursday after getting lost 12 hours earlier while hiking in the Eaton Canyon area above Pasadena. Assisted by a deputy who descended by rope from a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department helicopter, the men were individually hoisted up to the aircraft before being whisked away to the nearby Eaton Canyon Nature Center. The department's Altadena station received a call at 5:40 p.m. Wednesday from one of the two 24-year-old men saying they were "OK" but had become lost, sheriff's Deputy Daniel Page told KTLA-TV Channel 5. The men, described as fit but inexperienced hikers, were believed to have started their trek about noon, Page said.

In a summer where bears are splashing into backyard pools, trashing garbage cans and - in one tragic case - crashing into a car, experts came to Eaton Canyon Nature Center Saturday to discuss interactions between humans and bears in the foothills. Kim Bosell, a natural-area administrator for the Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreation, said people and bears try to steer clear of each other, but encounters are inevitable where the city meets the forest. “Black bears in this area aren't here to kill people,” she said.

Last spring, Corina Roberts found herself with 2,500 pinyon pine tree seedlings and nowhere to plant them. Now she has the baby trees in the ground near a former La Cañada Unified School District campus high in the Angeles National Forest. Later this year, she hopes to turn the former Chilao School into an ecological center run by her nonprofit group, Redbirds Vision. “It's hard to find something like this,” she said. “But when I found it I just fell in love.” Chilao School was originally built so the La Cañada school district could educate the children of U.S. Forest Service and Caltrans workers who lived in the Angeles National Forest, according to Mike Leininger, the district's director of facilities and operations.

A planning session last Saturday on the future use of what has become known as the Hahamongna Annex produced a room full of ideas from trails, equestrian and recreation leaders from La Cañada Flintridge, Pasadena and Altadena. Three scenarios and a number of variations were the product of a planning charrette, a term for face-to-face bargaining sessions. The scenarios looked at a variety of possible uses for the property, which was bought by the city of Pasadena from the Metropolitan Water District after the city leased the property for a number of years.

If you’re going to name a town for its greatest asset, the town fathers of Oceanside seem to have got that one right. Today more city than town, Oceanside is dressing up the city’s three and a half miles of wide, sandy beaches by bringing in new waterfront hotels, trendy restaurants and expensive homes and condos that all combine to beckon tourists from literally around the world. The old rap on Oceanside, home to Camp Pendleton, was that it was a military town and not the place to invest millions in your new beachfront home.
