Event Details

Tour LA's mighty River!-- w/Friends of the LA River

Sun. Feb. 20   8:30am-4:30 pm
Carpool tour (option to leave midday)

Led by Jenny Price
co-sponsored by Friends of the LA River

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?

Join us as we walk and drive along the river, to talk about its central role in the city's history and the necessity of the ambitious revitalization to LA's future.
 
Our tour of the less-well-known Valley stretch convenes at the Bette Davis Picnic Area (Griffith Park, N side of 134, dirs. below)--8:30am sharp!, for a 9am departure--where we form carpools, and stops at the mighty headwaters in Canoga Park, the verdant stretch in the Sepulveda Basin, the 1/2-mile-long Great Wall of LA mural and new Tujunga Wash Greenway, and the new park projects through the neighborhoods and film studios in Sherman Oaks and Studio City and beyond.
 
We'll eat lunch at an excellent Thai noodle shop en route (other options too--or feel free to bring your lunch), and we'll end with an optional stop at the legendary Cuban bakery Porto's.

Bring snacks and water and shoes that can get just a little wet (optional).  Dogs welcome.
