While construction continues at Los Angeles State Historic Park, volunteers are hard at work at our State Park around the corner, Rio de Los Angeles. Park Champions is a volunteer program managed by California State Parks Foundation, State Parks’ greatest ally and non-profit advocate. On this warm Wednesday, Park Champions worked in partnership with our long term volunteer group Las Abuelas del Rio, pulling invasive plants to restore the native riperian habitat and beautify the park. Stay tuned for information on upcoming volunteer projects as we continue the slow but steady progress of habitat restoration at Rio. And, check back periodically for updates on the Los Angeles State Historic Park construction, also proceeding at a slow but steady pace this summer. We’re looking forward to a beautiful new park this time next year!
