Help us revitalize the Zev Yaroslavsky L.A. River Greenway Trail!

Location: Studio City CA, 91604

Date: 9/14/2019 Spots Remaining: 9

Description

Quick Overview: Volunteers will be helping us revitalize the native plant restoration sites along the Zev Yaroslavsky L.A. River Greenway in Studio City in order to create sustainable habitat for birds and other wildlife and a beautiful space for the local community to enjoy. 

Mission or Broader Program Description: The mission of Audubon Center at Debs Park is to inspire people to experience, understand, and care for the local natural world. Volunteer events like this are one of the ways that we aim to restore the connection between people and the land in Los Angeles. We hope to build a community of stewards to help the L.A. River and the Greenway reach its full potential. 

Impact: Volunteers will play a central role in the revitalization of the Zev Yaroslavsky L.A. River Greenway Trail. It is a large expanse of land, and we could not maintain it on our own. Volunteers will be helping both local birds and the local community, and will have a unique opportunity to connect with the land here in Los Angeles. 

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: Volunteers will be weeding, watering, mulching, and picking up trash throughout the native plant restoration sites along the Zev Yaroslavsky trail. Gloves and tools will be provided, although volunteers are welcome to bring their own if preferred. 

Requirements: Volunteers will be working outdoors, so please dress accordingly. We highly recommend that volunteers wear a hat and bring sun protection. There will be light refreshments, but volunteers are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle as well. No previous experience required.
* 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.

Additional Details: We will be meeting at the entrance to the Zev Yaroslavsky Greenway Trail, on Valleyheart Dr. off of Whitsett Ave
