LA Gran Limpieza, the Great LA River Cleanup

La Gran Limpieza: The Great Los Angeles River Cleanup is a wonderful opportunity to make a positive impact on the Los Angeles River revitalization effort and on the environment. Trash from the entire Los Angeles River Watershed collects in the tributaries and main river channel. The trash then flows down to Long Beach polluting not only your neighborhood, but the Pacific Ocean.

You will have fun, meet like minded friends, and gain a sense of ownership of the river. Please bring boots, gloves, sunscreen, and all your friends.

Register for the confluence site at Cleanup Registration

We had a great time at the Pasadena Earth and Arts Festival 2012. We talked to Fair Trade Pasadena and how our campus can become a fair trade in a fair trade town.

Bike San Gabriel Valley handed out fliers for the Pasadena City College iBike program.

Our friends at the Arroyo Seco Foundation, NELA Transition and Pasadena Learning Gardens provided important information on sustainability movements in Pasadena. They all said that they would be at our Sustainable Living Week at PCC.
