Looking Back at 2010 and Forward to 2011
January 1, 2011 § 2 Comments
2010 began and ended with wonderful powerful rain storms. It was full of big creek stories – from the threatened oak woodlands in Arcadia, to the unveiling of the beautiful new Elmer Avenue green street project, and the long awaited river path opened in Elysian Valley.
Restoration projects moved forward at Malibu Lagoon, North Atwater Park, Long Beach, Glendale and, ojalá, the Piggyback Yard. The peskiest plastic bags were banned; low impact development was mandated. Creeks saw setbacks in Hahamongna, West Athens and Arcadia, and great historic bridges remain slated for demolition.
Creek Freak’s team of volunteers have done our level best to get the word out on these issues, and much more. Since we started in July 2008, we’ve published 402 posts! We’ve been heartened by your 1523 comments… if you like (or don’t like) what we do, please drop us a comment. What was your favorite creek story in 2010? What are you looking forward to in 2011? What would you like us to cover more in 2011?
