WHOSE HELP IS REQUIREDAdult
HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
We can all do our individual parts and have a collective positive impact on the vibrant urban ecosystems that thrive throughout the LA River Watershed.
THE GREAT LA RIVER CLEANUP RETURNS JUNE & JULY 2022
Join FoLAR and our amazing partners for our annual series of River CleanUps this summer. The CleanUp spans weekends in June and July, excluding the July 4th holiday weekend. We focus our CleanUps in the three natural-bottom sections of the River – the Sepulveda Basin, the Glendale Narrows, and the estuary in Long Beach. The verdant riparian vegetation in these sections makes it very easy for trash to get caught up and entangled in the River, polluting the water and habitat that is so important for the wildlife that calls the River home as well as the thousands of Angelenos that live and recreate along the River.
With your help, we can make an immediate, hands-on impact on LA’s urban ecosystems and contribute to a healthy and thriving LA River for the benefit of River-adjacent communities, visitors to the LA River, and of course LA’s urban wildlife.
We have work gloves and trash bags available at each site for volunteer use. We encourage volunteers to bring containers that can be reused as trash receptacles to reduce plastic waste (e.g., buckets, old pillow cases, empty pet food bags).
We’re working to clean up our river and cut down on plastic waste, so don’t forget to pack your reusable water bottle.
Each CleanUp site is very different, some with higher water levels and small rapids, others thick with vegetation. Read carefully on each site’s registration page to determine if the site is good for you. Always plan to wear sturdy close-toed shoes, boots or water shoes if you have them, and clothes you can get dirty.
