​DEBS PARK HABITAT RESTORATION
The Audubon Center at Debs Park is a field program of the National Audubon Society, one of the oldest conservation organizations in the country, and we are situated in the largest piece of public open space in the lower Los Angeles River Watershed. The Audubon Center is a vital and unique gathering place for the Northeast LA community. Our mission is to inspire people to experience, understand, and care for the local natural world.

EMERALD NECKLACE STEWARDSHIP EVENTS
The Amigos de los Rios' mission is to create an “Emerald Necklace” green infrastructure network of parks and trails throughout the Los Angeles Basin to connect the Mountains to the Sea, and in doing so, improve access to recreation and link Southern Californian communities to nature and each other, expand access to safe non-vehicular transportation, create culturally meaningful public spaces within blighted communities, and protect urban communities from the harmful effects posed by climate change. Emerald Necklace Stewardship Events occur on a weekly basis to plant and restore native habitat.
