Tour the Mighty Los Angeles River

Car-caravan tour – Sunday June 8, 9am-1pm
Everyone in Los Angeles has seen the LA River, and you may have heard that it’s being revitalized, but who knows where it is, exactly–and what exactly is happening on its banks? On this Friends of the LA River tour, you’ll walk, drive, and lunch along the river, as your guide will talk about its central role in the city’s history and the necessity of the ambitious revitalization to LA’s future.

The tour convenes at the River Center (near the 5/110), and stops at the new parks in the Glendale Narrows (across from Griffith Park), the historic Arroyo Seco confluence, the Los Angeles State Historic Park (aka the Cornfield), and the heart of industrial downtown.

Car-caravan tours (form carpools at start)–$20 members/$25 non. Nonprofits and students–contact mail@folar.org for member rate. 

Kids (thru 18) are free–and dogs are welcome (and free). Spaces limited, and advance sign-up required–mail@folar.org or 323-223-0585. For more information– http://www.folar.org/rivertours_2006.html.
