March River Roundup

Hey, folks!

Thanks for all the support and kind words over the last few days about LA County’s announcement of the two-year process to update the LA River Master Plan. We are very excited for this next phase of our work and are grateful to have you all by our side!

This newsletter is packed with LA River news, including an interactive map of the history of Taylor Yard, a book that reimagines the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn on the LA river, and much more.

Read through to stay updated on the latest river news, and if we missed something, let us know.

See you on the River,

The River LA Team
