Aspiring Eagle Scout Austin Wuthrich reached out to the Chevy Chase Estates Association searching for historical photos of our canyon to use in his Eagle Scout Project that would grace the Chevy Chase Library with historical photos. The CCEA opened up our entire photo collection to Austin and he curated, printed, framed, and hung the photos. He also created an impressive body of digital work documenting his creations that you can see here.
In his words: “The Chevy Chase Library is an integral part of this community, and it really shows in my memory as I look back fondly on times in primary school where I would spend summers up there participating in reading competitions and doing my Flat Stanley project –this is why I am excited to be able to give back to my community through my Eagle Scout project, especially by telling my community’s history.”
Please view his photo and story presentation. Pretty darn impressive. If you know Austin or his family, say thanks for all of us.

Pride of Buckingham Canyon Cleanup
8:30 AM / Saturday, June 15, 2019
Please join us in cleaning up our canyon by volunteering to pick up litter along East Chevy Chase to Emerald Isle Drive, and Linda Vista to Buckingham Road. We’ll meet at the intersection of East Chevy Chase and Linda Vista. Please contact Leticia Gonzalez at 818-434-4647 or email@example.com for more information.
The “Pride of Buckingham” group was established with the intent of bringing the folks who reside on Buckingham Road and Buckingham Place together in sharing this beautiful Canyon and taking pride in keeping the environment clean. The Canyon Cleanup event has been happening (usually quarterly) for more than a decade.
They may no longer die slow bleed out deaths from rat poison. We of the CCEA have been championing this for a long time.
Rat Poison kills rats; and HAWKS, OWLS, BOBCATS, MOUNTAIN LIONS, and your DOGS AND CATS.
POISON is NOT THE ANSWER!
This just in from our new Glendale Fire Chief Silvio Lanzas to share with canyon neighbors…
Glendale Fire Department in conjunction with the Pasadena Fire Department will be participating in a Brush Fire Preparedness drill on Sunday April 28th. The drill will be on the border of Glendale/Pasadena and La Canada at the top of Chevy Chase Canyon. There will be two sessions, 9:00am and 1:30pm each lasting approximately 3.5 hours. The drill involves a strike team deploying at a brush fire in a structure defense mode during a simulated fire approaching the homes.
More to come about Glendale Fire Chief Silvio Lanzas and his battle with wildfires.
