Project Description:

For 30 years FoLAR has led the movement to reimagine the River as a place where humans, wildlife and habitat coexist. Through programming, we engage, educate and mobilize diverse communities to protect the River. Restoring and stewarding the River is going to take the power of thousands calling out in one voice, “CRACK THE CONCRETE!” As such, FoLAR’s signature campaign will reinvigorate programs and provide opportunities to take action. Crack the Concrete is only the beginning of a longer-term vision; the pilot of a multi-generational undertaking to bring back a vibrant 51-mile LA River.
