We'll explore some of the hidden treasures of the Los Angeles River's Glendale Narrows section. Full of birds, bugs and plants, it's often a particularly photogenic stretch of the river -- with the dynamic and vibrant neighborhood of Frogtown just above. The LA River Corgis - Kasha and Chase - will also be on hand for their cameos.
Your guide, Anthea Raymond, is a long-time resident and kayaker active in the River communities. From the adjacent bike path and pocket parks, she'll tell you about the the unique landscape and history of the river -- the birthplace of Los Angeles. She will also take you inside the soft-bottom riverbed.
You will also get the inside scoop on the creative businesses popping up next to the river as well as as plans to create a world class park there. Anthea can also show you where Brad Pitt spent a winter learning to sculpt, and get you a locals' discount at the Frogtown Brewery.
Feel like raising the adventure level? Let us know and we can schedule special routes that take you to the LA River's yet-untamed left bank. These walks would meet at different locations and might include a stop at a former train yard.
