Our Mission

Pasadena Beautiful Foundation works with individuals, community organizations and the City to restore, renew and protect Pasadena’s parks, urban forests, and public spaces.

An Update from PBF

To the friends of Pasadena Beautiful Foundation,

Our board of directors and advisory board join me in wishing all of you good health and safety during this unusual and stressful period of the global pandemic. Like all of us, we’re staying home and trying to make the best of what we can given the circumstances.

The result of our quarantine is that we won’t be as active uploading our pictures to the website as often as we usually do. But we are still participating in the weekly “Wednesday Weeders” from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. We’re wearing masks and staying appropriately apart, and still having fun as we work in Pasadena’s parks. Feel free to join us.

I am hopeful that we will get back to a more normal existence in the not too distant future. I don’t know about you, but I am gratified by the outpouring of kindness that I can detect from my fellow Pasadena citizens. We’re all in this together and I think this is felt universally by our wonderful community.

In solidarity,

Brad Hanson
Pasadena Beautiful President
