Volunteer with Harvardwood Helps at the Great LA River Cleanup on April 22nd!
This fun outdoor event is attended by A TON of volunteers! After you RSVP to us, Harvardwood Helps Director Stacy Cohen will get in touch with you so you can find her the day of the event and meet with other Harvardwood volunteers.
Steelhead Park in Elysian Valley is one a series of about a dozen small parks along the LA River in the Glendale Narrows. Designed by North East Trees, the park features native vegetation, a small outdoor classroom, and artistic gates and fences commemorating the steelhead trout that used to be plentiful in the LA River. The river here is soft bottom, with tall trees and plenty of ducks.
