Led by Jenny Price
Co-Sponsors:
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?

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 and water-supply projects to LA's future.

The tour convenes at the River Center  (570 W Ave. 26, near the 5/110--8:30am sharp!--for a 9:00 departure), where we form carpools, and stops at a stormwater park in the green Glendale Narrows ); 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 then we'll head into the even less well-known South, to the new Maywood Riverfront Park and the stunning new Dominguez Gap wetland, with an optional hop to see the mouth at the Long Beach harbor.

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