Tuesday June 11th is the 6th Annual LA River Day at City Hall! Join Friends of the L.A. River (FoLAR) as we gather to influence city decisions to deliver an ecologically restored and publicly accessible River.
Sign and Share our #CracktheConcrete Petition and stand with FoLAR at City Hall!
We're taking our message to City Hall to tell our local government to deliver its promise of restoration on the LA River. Sport your FoLAR shirt at City Hall with us and RSVP with this form. Look for fellow FoLAR shirts at security and in the Rotunda!
Few things to note if you're joining and are unfamiliar with City Hall:
You want to enter on Main Street on foot. Metro to Civic Center / Grand Park station is the closest station to City Hall, bus routes and ride share are also recommended.
You'll need to pass through security, so bring ID and be prepared to give your name and reason for your visit. "Attending LA River Day at City Hall" is a fine enough response! Staff there can also assist you reaching the full council chambers.
Continue across the bridge and walk past the bank of elevators. Once you reach the Rotunda, proceed left, down the southern hall. Entrance to Council Chambers will be on your right – Room 340.
Crack the Concrete is heating up - join us in our call to deliver park space and concrete removal.
Two River-defining projects are in the works between Glassell Park and Cypress Park on the East Bank of the River: the Casitas Lofts and Taylor Yard G2 River Park. We want to ensure this park will accomplish the 20+ acres of ecosystem restoration, as well as the channel widening and concrete removal promised in the LA River Ecosystem Restoration Study, no matter how long it takes.
The best part of advocating with us is that you are not alone!
