The Great Los Angeles River CleanUp 

The Great Los Angeles River CleanUp, “La Gran Limpieza,” has been an annual spring FoLAR event since 1989. What began with a dozen people at one site the first year has grown to an effort involving 5,000 people at 15 sites over 3 weekends in April and May along the River’s length.  In 2015, FoLAR removed over 30 tons of garbage from the River.  Check back in early 2016 for dates.  If you are a corporation interested in doing a stand-alone cleanup as part of organizational activities for your employees, please contact us at contact@folar.org.
