Calling all Creek Freaks! (and other interested parties)

If you’ve got time on your hands and you’re itchin’ to attend a meeting or two or five, here’s where you should be. The stream protection hearings are very important! Let the city of Los Angeles know that you want our few remaining natural streams preserved. The city is holding three more hearings, so pick the one that’s most convenient for you. I attended the first one last week and I learned about some streams I’d never known. Please attend!
