Hidden Bonelli: The Izaak Walton League Grandmothers Grove


It took multiple years, and who knows how many loops around Bonelli Park trails, before I discovered this plaque commemorating Grandmothers Grove. I am still not sure, but I suppose it marks the cluster of pines growing in a hollow below Fatt Hill - the only grove-looking congregation of trees in the area. As you can see, there is no date, nor can I find any information on the marker or commemorative grove on the internet, though there must be something either in the archives of the Izaak Walton League, or lost in the bowels of some Los Angeles County archive.

The Izaak Walton League (as per their website) was "founded in 1922 to conserve outdoor America for future generations. The League's 54 founders, who were avid anglers, named the organization after Izaak Walton, the 17th century author of "The Compleat Angler," a classic book about the art and spirit of fishing
