The Drought & LA River

On April 1st, Breakout will be hosting another LA edition of GroundBreakers, shedding light on issues that matter most to our community. On the docket for the day will be the future of the LA River and the implications of the recent droughts and even more recent floods.

The City recently purchased a piece of land along the LA River known as the G2, a 41 acre "crown jewel" parcel that will open up local communities to have access. 

We will be meeting at Marsh Park and then headed on foot to the "Frog Spot" for a timely conversation overlooking the G2.
