Join Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio R. Villaraigosa for an announcement of the Los Angeles River being selected as an America’s Great Outdoors (AGO) project and an Urban Waters Federal Partnership pilot site. The event will be held on Thursday, January 12 from 12pm to 1pm at North Atwater Park, 3950 W. Chevy Chase Drive, Los Angeles, California.
As one of two AGO projects in the State of California, the Interior Department, other federal agencies, and the City will enhance the 9-mile Glendale Narrows reach of the Los Angeles River as a recreational corridor.
The Los Angeles River Watershed was also selected as a pilot site through the Urban Waters Federal Partnership – an effort by 11 federal agencies to stimulate regional and local economies, create jobs, improve quality of life, and protect Americans’ health by revitalizing urban waterways in underserved communities across the country.
The Los Angeles River is an excellent example of citizens developing a vision for a great urban park and trail system that will reconnect communities to the outdoors and improve local economies. Secretary Salazar looks forward to discussing how the Interior Department and other federal partners can work with local residents to help implement this vision.
Please RSVP to DOI_Events@ios.doi.gov. See you on Thursday, January 12.
