OAK WOODLAND HABITAT TO BE DEVELOPED AT DESCANSO GARDENS
LOS ANGELES COUNTY — A resolution clearing the way for development of a Southern California native oak woodland habitat at Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors, announced Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
At a cost of $785,000, the project will convert three acres of existing parkland into oak woodland and meadow habitat — featuring groups of Coast Live Oak Trees, seasonal wildflowers and other species that once comprised the principal flora of the basin and its surrounding foothills.
