Since 2008, we’ve been on the cutting edge of proving the navigability of the LA River through our expeditions, in order to protect and revitalize our urban river. Having been successful with that, we’ve forged ahead and have continued to lead the community in boating innovation on the river. In 2011, LA River Expeditions successfully tested the feasibility of guided, permitted boating excursions on the Los Angeles River via a pilot program with a coalition of local partners. In 2012, we ran further trips in the Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area. From 2013 to 2015, we’ve continued our partnership with the Electric Lodge to make it possible for thousands of people to enjoy the river via canoes and kayaks as part of the newly established LA River Recreational Zones.
This dramatic expansion of L.A. River expeditions is truly an historic occasion for the Los Angeles community, and it's an honor to be involved in this venture and serve your needs.
Through your urban adventure, you will learn about: the local wildlife, the watershed, the history of the river, and boating and river safety skills.
Traveling the river by canoe or kayak will provide you with a fresh understanding of the river — distinct from walking or biking along its banks. This experience will fundamentally reconnect you to the river, and will inspire and empower you to be river stewards. As you have fun while gathering indelible memories, you too will play a role in creating a clean, healthy, safe and sustainable river for current and future generations.
You could be one of the first person in your neighborhood, office or family — or, for our international guests, the first from your entire country — to have paddled the fabled, notorious Los Angeles River!
This form doesn't get you on a trip, but it does show that you're at least interested — we can then keep you in the loop if an opportunity arises.
