River LA secures critical resources via public/private partnerships to build parks and public spaces and develop renewable sources of water. We educate, engage, and enhance public health and well-being. We are the convener of our communities,  protecting our critical natural resources while building bridges that ensure an equitable future for all of Southern California.


Our mission is to bring people, water and nature together while pursuing a sustainable revitalization of the 51 miles of the Los Angeles River corridor.
