Photo Highlights from Urban Garden Party

On October 1, we held our most successful Urban Garden Party Fundraiser yet! We gathered with our supporters to celebrate the Los Angeles River and the leadership that’s paved the way. We cannot thank our sponsors and attendees enough for helping us exceed our goal and have a heck of a good time! The funds raised will enable us to continue our work on the Los Angeles River! There are lots of amazing photos from the evening, but we’d like to highlight just a few below. Enjoy!

October River Roundup

Whew! What a month it’s been already! This past weekend, we gathered with supporters to celebrate the LA River and honor the leadership that’s paved the way for a better river for all. We cannot thank our attendees and supporters enough! We’re delighted to share we had our most successful fundraiser yet. The event was so much fun and we are so grateful for all the sponsors and attendees.

This month’s roundup includes news from all 51 miles of our great river including our piece on the recent LA River water advisory, a report on water recycling, and an update on G2. Give it a read and let us know if we missed anything in the news. Have feedback or suggestions? Send ‘em this way!

The 2017 Urban Garden Party

In just a few weeks, we’ll host our 7th Annual Urban Garden Party fundraiser. Just as our work, this event has progressed over the last seven years, from a small festival to our most important annual fundraiser. This year, we look to celebrate the wholeness of the LA River with our event theme River Beautiful + River Real. (Our take on the City Beautiful movement!)

We’re pretty excited and do hope you decide to join us. This fundraiser is our main event to build energy and resources for the work we do. Today, we want to share highlights of the event. If you’re ready to join us, RSVP here.

ICYMI: Bacteria Levels and a Petition for Healthy River

Last week, Heal the Bay issued a water advisory, urging the public to avoid exposure to the waters of the Los Angeles River because of the bacterial pollution levels found in the water. While these levels had decreased minimally by Sunday, September 10th, they still recommend avoiding the water.

😬  Not the best, clearly.

But there’s actually a lot to learn from this moment. In this post, we’ll dive into everything you need to know about what these water levels mean for you and your family. Read on to learn more, and sign our petition to stand with a healthy river for all of Southern California.

The Overview

Heal the Bay is a nonprofit dedicated to making the coastal waters and watersheds of Greater Los Angeles safe, healthy, and clean. As part of their work, their scientists collect water quality samples every week at four spots along the LA River. They began doing this in 2015 and the results from the samples taken on Sept 6th in Sepulveda Basin were the most alarming yet.
