South LA River Tacos & Paletas Carpool Tour


Join Jenny Price for an exploration of the less well-known LA River, from Downtown LA to the mouth of the River in Long Beach. This tour will explore newly opened parks, water filtration projects, and of course, the mouth of the river where it empties into the Port of Long Beach. Jenny accompanies this adventure with a description of the Los Angeles River’s history, its present, and potential futures.


The car caravan tour will meet near the Downtown State Park (see below for closest address) at 9am and return to the park at 4:30pm, or thereabouts. Make a reservation and pay by check or credit card – your spot isn’t guaranteed until paid for. Bring your own lunch or eat tacos at the lunch stop! This event costs $25, or $20 if you are a member, student, or senior. Ask about group rates and discounts for members of Sierra Club, TreePeople, and the NRDC. Location: Downtown State Park, near 1755 Baker Street, Los Angeles, (across from FarmLab).  Date/Time:  Sunday, October 25, 2009 from 9am to 4:30pm.
