Friends of the Los Angeles River, with support from an estimated 5000 volunteers, and in conjunction with the Mayor's Day of Service, got down to the business of nature on Saturday for the 22nd Annual L.A. River Clean-Up. From 9:00 a.m. until noon, crews helped with beautification and revitalization efforts in 14 locations with 25 tons of garbage "projected to have been pulled out of the river," reports KTLA.
