The Los Angeles City Council held the 2nd annual Los Angeles River Day on June 3 in the city hall rotunda. The event raises awareness about the progress and improvements on the L.A. River, and educates the public about resources available along the 51 miles of river that run from the San Fernando Valley to Long Beach. Numerous groups and organizations showcased the events and services they hold along the river. Councilman Tom LaBonge, 4th District, was honored during the proceedings for his support of the L.A. River. He was joined by Councilman Mitch O’Farrell, 13th District, and representatives of the Friends of the Los Angeles River.
