About this event

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.

After flowing for 20 plus miles in a completely concrete channel from Downtown through the Gateway Cities, the Willow Street Estuary in Long Beach is the beginning of the last natural bottom stretch of the River. Just a few miles from the Pacific Ocean, freshwater mixes with saltwater here, supporting a unique ecological habitat and a wide variety of shorebirds.
