It’s time to roll up your sleeves and show your love for the LA River - the Great LA River CleanUp’s back for 2017! Registration is open now - join today and be part of the largest urban river cleanup in America.

Last year 9,000 volunteers shattered records at the 2016 CleanUp and hauled off more than 70 tons of trash. This year we’re going to tear up the record books again with another record-breaking CleanUp!

On April 15th we’re in the Upper River, on April 22nd the Mid River, and we close out the month on the 29th in the Lower River. With 14 sites and three days there’s a site for everyone from the mountains to the sea!

About the Sepulveda Basin at Balboa Blvd CleanUp Site:

The Sepulveda Basin is where the first kayak trips took place. In addition to mallard ducks, herons and egrets, we’ve had raccoons and turtles show up. Beautiful orange orioles migrate through the area too. This section of the River is the first natural-bottom section on the River – a lush, green oasis in the middle of the San Fernando Valley.

Parking and check in will be available on both sides of Balboa Blvd with Sepulveda Basin Sports Complex on the west and Lake Balboa / Anthony C. Beilenson Park on the east. Volunteers are welcome enter the site from either location.
