Arroyo Seco Confluence Cleanup - Friends of the Los Angeles River

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!

The Arroyo Seco Confluence is mostly concrete where the 5 and 110 Freeways intersect.  There are red-legged stilts on the concrete and swallows nest under the bridge.  Downtown Los Angeles is where it is because of this confluence – ditches or “zanja” were dug from the River to supply water to the Pueblo.

Located under the Pasadena Freeway is the Confluence of the Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River. In 1769, the Portola expedition’s Father Juan Crespi described this area as “very well lined with large trees, sycamores, willows, cottonwoods, and very large live oaks.” This concrete-lined site is just downstream from the natural-bottomed Glendale Narrows. You’ll see red-legged stilts in the shallow water and swallows flying overhead – you can find their mud nests under the bridge.

We will be holding a MyLA311 app training as well as a fun scavenger hunt using the 311 app to tag bulky items for pick-up/clean-up as we love the neighborhood together! Once again, we are expecting the greatest turnout ever and would love for you to be a part of this amazing movement that is tangibly and positively transforming our neighborhood!

Flash Cleanup in Glassell Park

Cnqw9YTUAAA73fT.jpg

The Glassell Park Improvement Association invites you to help clean up the Crestmoore Steps!

The “Flash Cleanup” idea is to give a short time--45 minutes--that won’t get in the way of our busy weekends. We come together, care for our community, finish and go. The more people who show up the more trash and weeds get cleaned up.

Please join us at the foot of the steps on Crestmoore Street off Verdugo Road, and don’t forget to bring your own sun protection, work gloves and water.

Contact Jim Kiehl to RSVP or to join our team for future clean ups.

Thank you to Councilmember Gilbert Cedillo’s office for their assistance with trash pickup after the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
