About this event

Hosted in partnership with LA Waterkeeper

The River needs YOU! This summer, join FoLAR and our partners for a series of small, in-person cleanups to collect trash and prevent waste from polluting our watershed and urban waterways. Together, we’ll make a collective impact and do our part to tend to the vibrant urban ecosystems that thrive throughout Los Angeles.

All registered volunteers will receive a CleanUp Starter Kit, available for pickup at a local REI or mailed to your provided address, with the essentials to participate, including trash bags and a pair of plant-based disposable gloves. As part of our COVID-19 Safety Protocols, additional supplies may not be provided on site.

Compton Creek is a major tributary of the LA River, in fact the last major tributary before the River ends her 51-mile journey at the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach. Situated in what used to be the LA River floodplain, Compton Creek was historically characterized by freshwater marshes, willow, and cottonwood trees. Today, most of the 8.5-mile creek is channelized, save for the lower 3 miles of earthen bottom, where you're likely to see stilts, killdeer, and mallards, and perhaps even a heron!
