May River Roundup

Hey, folks!

It’s May, which means it’s almost time for the LA River recreation season! The Los Angeles River will officially open for business Memorial Day weekend. Until then, there are lots of opportunities to spend time around the river, including our LA Food Bowl event with CicLAvia, which you can learn more about and register for here.

Additionally, we need you to join the conversation digitally! We’ve partnered with the Mountain Recreation and Conservation Authority to explore a River Ranger program. This plan is envisioned as a new program to make the river safer and more inviting. Please take this survey to share the priorities and needs of your community for this program. En español aquí.

Read below to see this month’s newsletter and, as always, let us know if we missed anything.
