In Atwater Village near the Los Angeles River, non-profit Taking the Reins has started a new program to introduce youth to native plant horticulture, conservation and stewardship of the land in urban areas. “Children with limited access to nature will learn about the native species of plants and stewardship of TTR’s portion of the Los Angeles River corridor."
We celebrate Taking The Reins for their program and interest in nature and ecology in Atwater Village along the LA River.
