L.A. River Clean-Up and Day of Service Tomorrow
April 29, 2011 § 2 Comments
It’s covered on plenty of sites elsewhere, but Creek Freaks should definitely plan to come to tomorrow’s Friends of the Los Angeles River La Gran Limpieza – the annual Great Los Angeles River Clean-up. Clean 9am to 12noon Saturday April 30th 2011 at over a dozen sites from Long Beach to Tujunga. This year the multi-site event is combined with city of Los Angeles Mayor Villaraigosa’s Day of Service. The riverly day concludes with a 12n-2pm celebration at Rio de Los Angeles State Park – including a free concert by Ozomatli!
FoLAR’s annual clean-up has definitely been an important event in my personally connecting with our local river. It’s a great day to go and see the most natural parts of the river, to get up-close, to help the river out a bit, and to think about one’s own consumption and how our throw-away culture contributes to so much trash degrading our urban waterways. Go check it out!
