Paddle the L.A. River: Canoe & Kayak Trips Start August 13th

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Okay, so they are about a month behind their original estimate, but now we have a date and some contact info to share with you: Canoe and kayak trips on the Los Angeles River will run weekends from August 13th to September 25th, and reservations will be open soon.

With a website poised to launch at Noon today, Paddle the L.A. River is teasing would-be urban adventurists with info that the supervised canoe and kayak trips will be on 1.5 miles of the river at the Sepulveda Basin in the Valley.

Tickets will be available for purchase on their site, and until it goes live (soon, so soon!) you can put in your email to sign up for reminders.

Who will take the plunge? Let us know!
