FOLAR Brings Back America’s Largest Urban River CleanUp
From Friends of the LA River: Friends of the LA River (FOLAR) is proud to announce the 28th Annual Great Los Angeles River CleanUp: La Gran Limpieza (CleanUp). FOLAR’s annual CleanUp has exploded in recent years, shattering records for volunteer turnout and trash collected, and is the largest urban river cleanup in America. The 2016 CleanUp attracted 9,000 volunteers who removed over 70 tons of trash from the LA River at more than a dozen sites. The 2017 CleanUp will be held at 14 sites along the entire length of the LA River on the last three Saturdays of Earth Month (April 15th, 22nd, and 29th) 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. Registration is open to all volunteers at www.folar.org/cleanup.
