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

Dear Friends of Pasadena Beautiful Foundation,

There is a sense of optimism as we emerge from the stress and strain of a very difficult year for all of us and move into summer. At PBF, we’re excited to get our activities back on the calendar. It feels like we have much to look forward to.

Our annual luncheon, which is open to all PBF members, is now scheduled for the third week of June. Over the summer we’ll be heading out on field trips to fun places like Lotusland and Apricot Lane Farms.

Starting in the fall, PBF will be hosting both the Golden Arrow and the Commercial Design awards. And our Wednesday Weeders will be back in action working in Pasadena’s parks and library gardens, making sure our public spaces are spruced up. If you would like to participate, please check our website for more information on these activities.

You make all the difference to our community. If you haven’t already joined PBF as a member, I encourage you to do so. When you join our all volunteer, 60 year old organization, you will be helping us plant trees around the City and help us support our many efforts to benefit the community.

Best wishes,

Brad Hanson
Pasadena Beautiful President
