Tour the mighty L.A. River from Downtown LA to the mouth in Long Beach

On the Friends of
the LA River tours, we walk, drive, and lunch along the river, as we
talk about its central role in the city’s history and the necessity of
the ambitious revitalization to LA’s future. Led by Jenny
Price.  Stops include industrial downtown, Maywood Riverfront Park, a
park-to-be in Cudahy, the brand-new Dominguez Gap wetland, the
bird-filled soft-bottom river in north Long Beach, and the harbor. 
Tour convenes at the River Center (near the 5/110). $45 members/$50 non.  Lunch included. Kids (thru 18) are free–and dogs are welcome (and free).
