Take a Ride on the Mighty LA River Tour

You’ve driven along it, maybe even walked or biked along it. You’ve read about it right here on our blog. But have you actually experienced the LA River? Do you have a real grasp on what its health means for the future of our city?

To get a real sense of what the LA River actually is and does, a guided educational tour will do the trick. Local environmental writer Jenny Price is teaming up with Food & Water Watch, Santa Monica Baykeeper and Environment Now for a tour of the LA River on Saturday, February 26th.

Jenny will explain the LA River’s central role in our history as well as the potential for the river to meet LA’s future water needs. Tour participants will meet at the LA River Center, then drive to Glendale Narrows, visit sites in downtown and then make their way to Boyle Heights for lunch. From there you’ll be able to check out the Dominguez Channel Wetlands and see the mouth of the river where it enters the Long Beach Harbor.

To learn more and sign up, please visit Food & Water Watch’s sign-up page. Hurry, the Mighty LA River Tour is filling up fast!

Are you planning on attending? Have you been on a LA River tour before? We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below.
