Join Harvardwood Helps at Friends of the LA River's 30th Annual Great LA River CleanUp! 
We'll be working at the Glendale Narrows Riverwalk, located within the scenic 11-mile natural bottom Glendale Narrows stretch of the River. The Riverwalk is a landscaped recreational trail, perfect for pedestrians and bicyclists, running along the north bank of the River across from Griffith Park. The Riverwalk currently includes 2 small parks, an equestrian facility, and public art installations, and there are projects underway to extend the trail and even construct a bridge across the River to Griffith Park! 

We recommend wearing comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. Wear good sneakers or boots, and don’t forget to put on sunscreen and bring a hat!

FoLAR provides trash bags and gloves, but you can bring your own gloves if you prefer to use them. They will have plenty of water at each site, but please be sure to bring your own reusable water bottle! They also have some snacks for volunteers to enjoy.

FoLAR gives volunteers a t-shirt and a reusable bag! However, supplies may be limited and are given out on a first-come-first-serve basis.

The CleanUp will be cancelled if it rains within a 48-hour window of the CleanUp day.
