Bowtie Parcel Cleanup @ Fletcher Drive - Friends of the LA River

  • The Bowtie Parcel 2800 Casitas Avenue Los Angeles, CA, 90039 United States (map)

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!

The Bowtie Parcel is located off Fletcher Drive in the scenic Glendale Narrows, the central and longest natural area of the LA River. The site features historic Fletcher Drive Bridge (completed in 1927). The soft bottom river is home to ducks, cormorants, herons, and egrets.  The site is just across from the beginning of the River’s Recreation Zone begins where both kayaking and fishing are allowed from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Today the site is home to The Bowtie Project, a partnership between Clock Shop and California State Parks – read more.

See the Los Angeles River Rover here during the CleanUp!

To participate you must register and turn in a completed waiver at the CleanUp.
