On the heels of the annual Great LA River CleanUp comes another large do-gooding river activity tomorrow morning. 2,000 people from Heal the Bay, the NAACP, PAVA and ANAHUAK will be cleaning the Glendale Narrows section of the LA River along with Councilman Eric Garcetti and other neighborhood and organization leaders.

"The L.A. River is something we all have in common. Only if all communities work together will we be able to restore and revitalize California’s natural settings," a Heal the Bay statement reads. "The Los Angeles River faces threats from trash, pollution and overdevelopment. The willow-filled Narrows section is home to several animal species. It has become a community hub, serving as an oasis of tranquility in an otherwise urbanized setting of concrete and traffic noise."
