Do you realize there is a beautiful river right in your backyard? Not only does Los Angeles have a river, but bike and running paths as well as dense, restored vegetation where animals call home. With eighty percent of Americans now living in cities, there is an increasing challenge of how to connect current and future generations with national wildlife refuges and the outdoors. This project is part of the Service’s Urban Wildlife Conservation Program and unites critical partners – Los Angeles Conservation Corps and Friends of the Los Angeles River – in this endeavor.
Please check out this inspiring video and share it on your social pages to help bring back nature to urban residents and in particular, connect urban youth with America’s natural wonders.
