Re-elect Rick Schneider - Champion of the Nature Park

Rick (officially, Dr. Richard Schneider) has been there for the park from the very beginning: working to get the park built, consistently attending community cleanups, donating discretionary money for additional plants, and supporting the expansion into the land adjacent to the golf course driving range.

Posing for a rare picture, while stopping by the park to chat with community volunteers. Usually Rick is dressed to work, as he pulls weeds, unearths and removes trash and litter, and enjoys the birds and critters who also use the park. 
Check my other blog for more information on Rick's campaign for re-election to the South Pasadena City Council.  Rick's re-election website contains indepth information on his positions and actions on many city issues. Follow Rick on twitter and facebook.

PARK CLEANUP - Saturday, September 10, 9 am - noon

Can't believe summer is over! I have not been to the park for a while but hope to make a visit this weekend. Looking forward to resuming the war on the weeds. Well, really I am looking forward to meeting up with friends and enjoying the park. Hope more of you can join us this year.

Meet at the park info sign on Pasadena Ave and then head down into the park. The group will pull weeds, pick up litter, and enjoy the park. Come for the whole time, for an hour, or just stop by to say hello.

Remember to:
- wear sunscreen, hat, sunglasses
- bring water
- bring gardening gloves and tools (weeders, trowels, whatever you use in your own garden)
- comfortable work clothes, including work shoes (sneakers or boots)
- binoculars for bird watching (optional)

Children must be under adult supervision at all times. There is poison oak in the park, which we will point out before we start.

Please pass this info along to anyone else you think might be interested in the park. If you know of anyone who doesn't use the internet, let me know so we can be sure they are kept in the loop.
