Tour the mighty Los Angeles River!– w/ with Friends of the LA River, Santa Monica Baykeeper, Food & Water Watch, and Environment Now.
Everyone in Los Angeles has seen the LA River, and has heard that it’s being revitalized. But who knows where it is, exactly–and what exactly is happening on its banks? On this carpool tour, we’ll walk and drive along the river, as we talk about its central role in the city’s history and the necessity of the ambitious revitalization to LA’s future.
This special Water-in-LA tour convenes at the River Center (near the 5/100), where we form carpools. We’ll visit the verdant Glendale Narrows, the historic Arroyo Seco confluence, the downtown spot you’ve seen in all the movies, a new park in Maywood, and the spectacular new Dominguez Gap wetland in Long Beach. We’ll stop for lunch at a terrific taqueria near Mariachi Plaza in Boyle Heights–or feel free to bring your own.
Led by Jenny Price, Santa Monica Baykeeper, Food & Water Watch, & Environment Now.
