Habitat Enhancement at Elysian Valley Gateway Park

Location: Los Angeles CA, 90039

Date: 8/17/2019 Spots Remaining: 10


Quick Overview: Volunteers will be working with Debs Park Conservation Program Coordinator, Cindy Castaneda, to maintain native plant restoration sites at Elysian Valley Gateway Park, along the L.A. River. 

Mission or Broader Program Description: The Audubon Center’s mission is to inspire people to experience, understand and care for the local natural world. The nature-based education and community programs at Debs Park are designed to engage children and their families in the outdoor world, and to give them a personal stake in its protection by making environmental issues relevant to their lives. We are currently working to expand our reach beyond the physical space of our Center (located in Highland Park), to build bird-friendly communities along the L.A. River. 

Impact: By maintaining our restoration sites along the L.A. River volunteers will help build sustainable habitat for birds and other wildlife, increase the biodiversity along the River, and create a clean and beautiful space for the community to enjoy.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Volunteers will be maintaining restoration sites through weeding, watering, mulching, raking, and picking up trash. All tools and materials needed will be provided. 

Requirements: Be sure to bring lots of water, sun protection, and clothes you don't mind getting dirty! Remember to wear closed-toe shoes and dress in layers. Volunteers will need to sign a waiver prior to volunteering (MINOR WAIVERADULT WAIVER) - if you are not able to print the waiver beforehand we will also have copies available onsite. 

* Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to bring and have signed by a parent/guardian a Volunteer Agreement & Release for Minors. The form can be found on L.A. Works website Q&A section.
