13 Jul Greening Communities around the Lower LA River
Our partners are asking for your input! Here’s a great moment to get involved and be heard!
The Watershed Conservation Authority in partnership with North East Trees and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments—and as part of a vision of “Connecting Communities Through Nature”—is developing an urban greening master plan for the Gateway Cities and Lower LA and San Gabriel Rivers.
The Gateway Greening Plan seeks to expand, develop, and enhance greenways, parks, open space, and green infrastructure both along our river corridors and throughout our urban communities. The plan is wide in scope, with focus on guiding greening efforts, collaboration, and funding in the region. We are working to promote a common vision and direction for greener cities working with functioning natural systems within 26 cities and unincorporated areas that make up the Gateway Cities in the central and lower LA basin.

There was once a time when the LA and San Gabriel rivers were braided sisters that brought life-giving waters to the region. It is critical to support these efforts to renew our connection to that natural legacy.
Please take a moment fill out this survey that has important implications for long-term greening efforts throughout SouthEast LA County.
