The summer is in full swing and we’ve got a lot happening along the LA River. Our first highlight will be Los Angeles County hosting its first community meeting in Canoga Park at Canoga Park High School on Wednesday, July 25 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. to discuss the LA River County Master Plan. This is a wonderful opportunity to come together to discuss the comprehensive vision for the transformation and reimagination of the Los Angeles River. Most importantly, at this meeting, we want and need to hear from YOU because a reimagined River to connect and serve the diverse communities of Los Angeles County can only be achieved with your input. Please click here for the flyer (Spanish version) for more details and visit CommunityMeeting.LARiverMasterPlan.org to RSVP today!
Also, take advantage of this opportunity while it lasts. LA River Expeditions is offering River LA supporters 10% off LA River kayaking trips. Use code RIVERLAROCKS2018 at checkout and be sure to tag your images #LARiver!
