Great L.A. River CleanUp: Bette Davis Picnic Area


It’s time to roll up your sleeves and show your love for the LA River - the Great LA River CleanUp’s back for 2017! Registration is open now - join today and be part of the largest urban river cleanup in America.

Last year 9,000 volunteers shattered records at the 2016 CleanUp and hauled off more than 70 tons of trash. This year we’re going to tear up the record books again with another record-breaking CleanUp!

On April 15th we’re in the Upper River, on April 22nd the Mid River, and we close out the month on the 29th in the Lower River. With 14 sites and three days there’s a site for everyone from the mountains to the sea!

About the Bette Davis Picnic Area CleanUp Site:

The Bette Davis Picnic Area is located at the upstream end of the scenic Glendale Narrows, the central and longest natural area of the LA River. The picnic area features wonderful tall old sycamore trees and a beautiful 1938 historic bridge. The River has sloped concrete sides and an earthen bottom with tall trees, sandbar islands, and lots of birds, including ducks, stilts, egrets and herons.
