Thanks to thousands of volunteers who pulled approximately 20 tons of trash from the Los Angeles River over three days at thirteen locations in April and May of 2014.  Our massive advocacy efforts not only clean the river for wildlife and people, but the show of stakeholder support often inspires policy makers to invest more deeply in river revitalization efforts.

This complex event would not be possible without our seriously dedicated sponsors!
