Friends of LA River



Compton Creek is a major tributary of the LA River, in fact the last major tributary before the River ends her 51-mile journey at the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach. Situated in what used to be the LA River floodplain, Compton Creek was historically characterized by freshwater marshes, willow and cottonwood trees. Today, most of the 8.5-mile creek is channelized, save for the lower 3 miles of earthen bottom, where you're likely to see stilts, killdeer, and mallards, and perhaps even a heron! Join Sunday Assembly as we help clean up this beautiful habitat!

Bike: Take the LARIO Trail and Bike Path and exit at Del Amo Blvd. Go west on Del Amo.

    Hi all! Please be sure to register on the Friends of LA River website too: https://folar.rallybound.org/comptoncreekdelamo/Account/Register

    They won’t be accepting paper waivers on site and have asked that everyone, including minors, be registered ahead of time!

    I just received the following confirmation va email:

    Thank you for joining the 30th Great LA River CleanUp! We’ll see you tomorrow morning at Compton Creek @ Del Amo Station.

    This Earth Month, thousands of Angelenos like you are coming together to work towards a clean, healthy, and thriving LA River. You have registered to volunteer at Compton Creek @ Del Amo Station at 20220 Santa Fe Ave, Compton, CA 90221 on April 27, 2019 from 9 am to 12 pm.

    If you have family or friends joining you, please be sure that they register online beforehand. We will not be accepting paper waivers onsite.

    Directions and parking information for Compton Creek @ Del Amo Station are below. Make sure to take a look at our FAQs, and don’t forget your water bottle and sunscreen tomorrow! Wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty and maybe even a little wet.

    Finally, we will be collecting, sorting, and documenting the types of trash found at this site. We could use a few extra hands with this effort. It’s possible to both clean and sort! If this is something you’re interested in doing, find a FoLAR staff member tomorrow morning and they’ll be able to direct you to where the trash sort is happening.

    See you on the River,

    Friends of the Los Angeles River
