Make a difference in the LA community and volunteer with 9,000(!) fellow Angelenos of all ages and backgrounds in the largest urban river cleanup in America. Friends of the LA River (FOLAR) returns with the 28th Annual Great LA River CleanUp: La Gran Limpieza (CleanUp)! In 2016, the CleanUp brought together Angelenos from all over to remove 70 tons of trash from the River. This year, the 3-weekend event will be held at 14 sites along the 51-mile long LA River on April 15th, 22nd, and 29th from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. JOIN other passionate volunteers and make a difference in the River community, learn more about the River with FOLAR’s mobile education center (the LA River Rover), and enjoy entertainment, goodies, and refreshments.
