The Friends of the Millard Canyon is a community-based volunteer advisory committee of the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy dedicated to the preservation and stewardship of Millard Canyon. The Friends plan community programs, lead hikes and hold restoration days, among other things. You can contact us at [email protected].
In the past, Friends of Millard were busy hosting school and community groups doing habitat restoration in the canyon. They also nurtured 50 new trees (Coast and Canyon Live Oak, Sycamore and Big Leaf Maple) planted by the Conservation Corps and funded by a grant AFC obtained from the County’s LA Reforestation Initiative.
AFC and the Friends of the Millard Canyon are working to turn the canyon into a community resource – a place to appreciate wilderness, and to educate our children about nature. We’re creating education programs, reforesting the tree canopy, and planning tours and events for the community.
Please consider supporting the canyon with a donation. We pride ourselves on keeping overhead low, but we still have bills to pay for property taxes, insurance, fire prevention, biological surveys, professional trail building and staff, among other things. It’ll take everyone’s help to make the canyon all it can be.
