LA River Day of Service

If you’re looking for a fun, family-friendly outdoor activity that’s also an opportunity to do good in our community, I highly recommend the LA River Day of Service, organized by the City of Los Angeles and Friends of the Los Angeles River. You can volunteer to help remove trash at one of 14 sites along the 51 mile length of the river from the Valley to the Harbor.

Following the morning cleanup, join the Volunteer Celebration at the Rio de Los Angeles State Park. This post cleanup party will feature music by LA based band and culture-mashers, Ozomatli, as well as food.


When: Saturday, April 30

  • Cleanup from 9 a.m. to 12 noon
  • Volunteer Celebration from 12 noon to 2 p.m.

14 cleanup sites are located along the LA River. Select your site when you register. See “How to Participate” below.
