In 1781, 44 people (Los Pobladores) traveled from Sonora, Mexico to settle along its West bank. For more than 100 years, this 51 mile long river was the sole source of water for the city that grew around it.

Have you ever *really* seen the LA River? Do you ACTUALLY know anything about it? Sure, maybe you've passed a concrete slab with an LA River sign... but have you seen where it flows? Do you know the *true* stories of the river's past and present beyond the fictional details you remember from seeing Chinatown? And what about its future? Sure, everyone in Los Angeles has seen the LA River, and many have heard that it's being revitalized. But who knows where and what exactly is happening on its banks? There's much more to the story than meets the eye as you pass from a speeding car while commuting.

On this 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 Los Angeles River Center & Gardens (570 W Ave. 26, near the 5/110 - DIRECTIONS HERE) where we will form carpools, and stops at the gorgeous Sepulveda Basin (San Fernando Valley), new parks in the Glendale Narrows (across from Griffith Park), the historic Arroyo Seco confluence, the Los Angeles State Historic Park (aka the Cornfield) in Chinatown, and the industrial downtown location that everyone's seen in movies and on TV.

We'll eat lunch at an excellent taqueria en route (or you can bring your own) and end with an optional stop at the world's best cream puff shop, in Little Tokyo.

Led by Jenny Price. Group rate available.

Bring snacks and water and shoes that can get just a little wet (optional, but way more fun!).  Dogs welcome. Spaces limited.
