Float On By

float on by

This morning I went paddling down the L.A. River with the L.A. Conservation Corps. For the past few summers, they have run the Paddle The L.A. River events. When I first moved to Los Angeles, you could not use the river…well, you really wouldn’t want to..it was pretty gross but there has been a movement to clean it up and it make it more accessible. 

Usually, the tickets sell out super fast but some opened up so I grabbed one for this morning. Thank goodness I beat the heat. It was perfect out there! It’s a really short paddle that’s about 1 to 1-1/2 hour long. You can see a picture of our guides at the bottom of the Paddle the LA River page. They are super nice and knowledgeable. It’s a really smooth run and you go against the current for the first half. The great thing is seeing all the wildlife and water fowl right in the heart of the Valley. Who knew!!!???! There were cormorants, egrets, herons and lots of dragonflies. 

I wish I could have talked to the guides more but I did learn there are all sorts of fish in the river - mosquito fish, carp, talapia. They let you fish but you are supposed to catch and release them. Except some of the homeless folks do eat them. I wish I learned more about the plants…

Anyway, it is definitely a work in progress and thank goodness for the LA River Corp and FoLAR. They have helped “green” it up. 

It’s definitely city kayaking but how amazing to be able to do it! Also, if you choose to go with the Paddle The LA River crew, the funds go to the LA Conservation Corp youth programs. It’s pretty awesome!

Dear Students,
Looking for something to draw on the last Saturday night before school begins? This guy will never disappoint you, though you’ll have to imagine what the bottom of his dynamic instrument might look like.
Set a timer for 15 minutes. When it goes off you have 5 more minutes to finish up.
Best to you,
Professor Bootsy

Uh.. I have no idea what’s going on here…
