Thanks to funding provided by the Prop. 13 Bond Act, efforts are being made toward restoring the historic Arroyo Seco to its natural state. The Arroyo Seco was once a stream starting miles above JPL in the Angeles National Forest. It flowed through West Pasadena where the Rose Bowl stands, and then followed the path of the110 freeway, meeting up with the LA river near downtown. Sixty years ago Angelenos actually fished for trout in the stream. Now the Arroyo Seco is a concrete-lined flood channel, nearly dry because of several dams along its path. The Arroyo Seco Foundation recently unveiled its Restoration Feasibility Study, which aims to restore water flow and natural habitat to the stream. Concurrently the City of Pasadena has completed the Arroyo Seco Master Plan, which outlines its plan to transform the gulch into a recreation area. Patt Morrison talks with Arroyo Seco Foundation Director Tim Brick and Rosa Laveaga from the City of Pasadena about the future of this historic waterway.
The Great Depression and WWII were the formative experiences, or crucibles, for a generation of leaders. The digital age shaped the character of a later generation. What are the values and qualities that each generation acquired as a result of their formative experiences? Guest host Patt Morrison speaks with Warren G. Bennis, Distinguished Professor at USC's Marshall School of Business, Founding Chairman of the Leadership Institute and author of Geeks & Geezers: How Era, Values, and Defining Moments Shape Leaders (Harvard Business School Press).
