LA Creek Freak Launches Interactive LA Watershed Map

Here at LA Stormwater we are big fans of the local LA Creek Freak blog, which is full of insightful and useful information about all things LA watershed related. You may remember our recent interview with Joe Linton of LA Creek Freak in the last issue of our LA Stormwater eNewsletter, in which he asked readers to become familiar with their watersheds.

Joe Linton isn’t all talk, he and his pals at LA Creek Freak have been working hard to help Angelenos understand their watersheds a little better. Most recently the Creek Freak team launched an interactive map that allows users to click and learn a bit more about local streams, wetlands, lakes and watershed functions in the greater LA area. It’s a fantastically cool resource we’re sure you’ll enjoy!

The map itself, which LA Creek Freak acknowledges, is a work in progress. Nevertheless, we have found it to be useful, fun and educational all at the same time.

First you’ll need to enlarge the map to enjoy all of its functionality. One item that is interesting to notice is that there are many streams in our area that remain nameless. Do you know a creek near you that doesn’t have a name? Zoom in and click on the blue markings on the map to read about water body sizes, exact location and much more.
