Tour LA’s mighty river!– w/ Friends of the LA River.
Special water-in LA tour–with speakers from Santa Monica Baykeeper, Food & Water Watch, & 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.
The tour convenes at the River Center, where we form carpools, and stops at the verdant Glendale Narrows, a new stormwater park in the same stretch, and the historic Arroyo Seco confluence, and the industrial downtown stretch that everyone’s seen in movies and on TV. We’ll eat lunch at an excellent Boyle Heights taqueria en route (or you can bring your own)–and we’ll head into the even less well-known South, to the new Maywood Riverfront Park and the stunning new Dominguez Gap wetland.
Led by Jenny Price. Carpool tour– Option to leave midday.
