Volunteers are sought for the Great L.A. River Clean Up on Saturday, June 18, from 8 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Join Friends of the Los Angeles River in the Glendale Narrows section of the river to collect trash and prevent waste from polluting urban waterways. Participants will meet at the Bette Davis Picnic Area, 1620 Rancho Ave. in Glendale. The picnic area is located at the upstream end of the scenic Glendale Narrows, the central and longest natural-bottom stretch of the L.A. River. The picnic area features old sycamore trees and a 1938 historic bridge. The river has sloped concrete sides and an earthen bottom in the narrows, with trees, sandbar islands and birds including ducks, stilts, egrets and herons.
Work gloves, trash bags and hand sanitizer will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to wear sturdy, closed-toed shoes that can get wet, and bring a water bottle.
