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!
