In 2018 we'll clean the LA River in Balboa Narrows (San Fernando Valley), Glendale (Foothills), and a third lower location along our prized "River of Angels" before it meets the ocean.
The Great LA River Clean Up is back! This is the largest urban river clean up in America, and it starts in April 2018.

For 29 years Friends of the LA River ( and fellow Angelenos have cleaned up the Los Angeles River to protect our beaches and oceans from trash and garbage. In 2017 10,000 volunteers were mobilized to remove 100 tons of trash. Help make 2018 even bigger. JOIN US:

IMPACT Any discussion about what the Los Angeles River is must begin with a talk about what it was. Imagine a 51-mile-long waterway meandering from the San Fernando Valley to the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach, providing fresh water to 14 cities in the greater LA metropolitan area. SEE OUR IMPACT
