LA River Cleanup 2018

On April 14, 2018, members of Local 695 and the Young Workers Committee joined Friends of the LA River on their annual cleanup day at Glendale Narrows Riverwalk.

Since 1986, the Friends of the LA River has been devoted to restoring the LA River’s natural habitat and is fueled by the dream of a river free from concrete and to transform it into a swimmable, boat-able, fishable, bike-able river for all. Thank you to all Local 695 members who dedicated their time to clean up our river!
