Our January Goal-setting meeting with special guest speakers is set for the afternoon of Saturday Junuary 14th.

We have an exciting year ahead with celebrations for the Old Glory Pico Oak's 20th year of survival in its new location and SCOPE's 35th Anniversary Bash.

We hope you will plan to attend Saturday to hear what we are up to and help us plan our 2023 goals.
Register for the meeting here.

Here are SCOPE's Goals from last year:

1. Continuing work to ensure the viability of local wildlife corridors and the Los Pinetos highway undercrossing.

Many animals, including mountain lions, have been killed trying to cross I-5 and Highway 14. We want to ensure they have a safe way to get to the other side of the road. You can read more about wildlife corridors here.

2. The Year of the Tree! John Quigley spoke at our meeting about his 2002 tree sit action to save the Old Glory Oak Tree and the importance of big trees to carbon sequestration and slowing climate change.

He will be organizing a 20th year celebration and needs volunteers. Many members suggested additional oak actions, from acorn planting to a tour of big trees in the Santa Clarita Valley, to a book reading of Douglas Tallomy's "The Nature of Oaks: The Rich Ecology of our Most Essential Native Trees".

3. Continue our efforts to preserve and protect the Santa Clara River.

4. We will also continue our work on plastic pollution and local planning issues including Newhall Ranch and Chiquita Canyon Landfill.
