Los Angeles River

 

You know Los Angeles has a river, right?  But did you know it’s more than concrete and graffiti? 

On Sunday, April 18th,   grab your camera, load up the kids and the dog (or a few friends), and car-caravan around the city checking out fab vistas of the L.A. River like Sepulveda Basin and the new parks in the Glendale Narrows (across from Griffith Park).  

Jenny Price of Friends of the L.A. River (FoLAR) and author of “Flight Maps: Adventures in Nature in Modern America” and “13 Ways of Seeing Nature in L.A” will fill you in on the River’s revitalization in between photo ops/river views.  You’ll go to a great taqueria  for lunch as well as what is touted as the world’s best cream puff shop in Little Tokyo.”  (The food is optional…but not in Ms. Go Go’s book.) 

NOTE: Advance sign-up required!   This tour fills up quickly so don’t delay, Go-Go’ers! 

Bring water, shoes that can get wet (optional, but so much less fun), and snacks (save room for the taqueria and Little Tokyo, though!) 

‘Cause really, how often can you get wet and wild with cream puffs…? 

Ready?  U Know U Want 2 Go Go….
