"You’re standing out here you feel this wind going over and across your face, you smell sage in your hand, you look up and you see nothing but sky, and we’re only five minutes from Downtown L.A."

North East Trees – Ascot Hills Park

“In this part of the city we really have a great population or group of communities that have chosen to live in Northeast L.A. specifically because there’s still a lot of natural space around them. And a lot of the young people we work with are really into and love being up here in the hills. They’ve grown up in this sort of green, culture of green awareness and I think it’s pretty amazing what this new millennial generation with their heightened awareness of all things environmental is great. It’s not that challenging to get them out here and sometimes we have over a hundred high school students when we have our monthly volunteer events. It’s pretty cool. I know it’s hard to describe verbally, but if you’re standing out here you feel this wind going over and across your face, you smell sage in your hand, you look up and you see nothing but sky, and we’re only five minutes from Downtown L.A. standing here. I could be literally in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada’s if I were dropped there. It’s literally that natural and peaceful. There’s no sign of human built structures anywhere. It’s just hills, grass, trees, and birds. I love being out here. It’s incredibly convenient. I invite anyone, especially people that live in this part of the city who don’t know about it to come out to Ascot Hills Park and enjoy the nature here.”
