It’s time to roll up your sleeves and show your love for the LA River – the Great LA River CleanUp’s back for 2017! Registration is open now – join today and be part of the largest urban river cleanup in America.
Last year 9,000 volunteers shattered records at the 2016 CleanUp and hauled off more than 70 tons of trash. This year we’re going to tear up the record books again with another record-breaking CleanUp!
Steelhead Park in Elysian Valley is one a series of about a dozen small parks along the LA River in the Glendale Narrows. Designed by North East Trees, the park features native vegetation, a small outdoor classroom, and artistic gates and fences commemorating the steelhead trout that used to be plentiful in the LA River. The river here is soft bottom, with tall trees and plenty of ducks.
