How to Get Your Paddle On

While the LA River is now supposed to be fully protected under the Clean Water Act there are many uncertainties about how to realize that protection. One of the main reasons why the 2008 LA River Expedition occurred was to prove that the river was fully navigable as that was the main reason why it was not considered a “river” as per the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers and thus not protected.  We now need to move forward with a sensible plan to begin human use of the LA River in a way that is safe and also protects the LA River ecosystem.

The first leg of this journey is for you to let your leaders know that you want to spend some time on the river. Please follow this link to the petition that will be used to help move things forward:
