Special instructions  
***This event is on a Saturday***

I took part in this event last year and had a great time. Sadly I will not be able to join the fun this year, but you still can!

There are 12 locations for the cleanup. I suggest the Los Feliz location, but feel free to attend any location. Certainly, the Glendale Narrows stretch of the river (encompassing Los Feliz) is among the prettiest. See the event website for details on the other locations.

Go to folar.org for more details and the release form.

Directions  
Somewhere in the Glendale Narrows or the San Fernando Valley.

The Good  
The chance to explore this neglected part of our city.

The Bad  
A little bit smelly.
A little bit dangerous.

Where  Los Angeles

Notes  
This is your chance to frolic in the Los Angeles River and help the community in the process.

This annual event is put on by the Friends of the Los Angeles River (folar.org) in effort to remove some of the trash that collects in this navigable water way.
