'Tis the Season For Giving!

Join Monrovia Fire & Rescue for a special Spark of Love Toy Drive event!

Canyon Park's Second Kids Crafts In the Canyon Event!

Monrovia Canyon Park is hosting another Kids Crafts in the Canyon Event on Sunday, November 26, 2017!  This time around, we will be building small planters and sowing them with California Wildflower seeds!  While November may seem late in the year to plant seeds, did you know that the best time to plant in California is actually in the autumn months, rather than the spring time!  California’s rainy season is very short and seeds and seedlings will do best if allowed to soak up all of our fall and winter rains. This allows them to establish their roots before giving us all those beautiful spring flowers!

If you are interested in building a small planter for wildflower seeds and learning more about our amazing native plants, please stop by the Nature Center between 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 26, 2017.  

For more information, please feel free to call Monrovia Canyon Park at (626) 256-8282.
