Cleaning Up Our Waters
To celebrate Coastal Cleanup Day, we split up, with Jennifer heading to the confluence of the Arroyo Seco and the L.A. River, while Megan headed out to Lewis McAdams River Park. The L.A. River was in desperate need of attention and dozens of volunteers spent several hours pulling food waste, trash, tennis and golf balls, straws, bottles and cans, clothes and industrial waste from the stream and riverbeds. Lewis McAdams Park was far more scenic and peaceful, but that didn’t stop Megan from pulling a fair amount of plastic products from its waters. If you’ve never done a river or beach clean-up before, please do. It will provide quite an education, and you’ll feel good about how much trash you kept out of our waterways.
