Since the 1940s, the LA River has not looked much like a river. The banks of the river were transformed into a concrete trough in order to provide flood control after a series of devastating floods (the result of homes being built in the river’s floodplain).
This strategy was successful at controlling flood, but all the expense of nearly every other function of the river. 
With updated information about ecosystem services and the ability of functioning river systems to mitigate the impacts of climate change, plans are now underway to restore the river to its former glory. In addition to removing the concrete barriers, the goal is also to restore lost ecosystem services for the benefit of local communities.
“Now with the climate crisis, we can no longer afford to have a concretized river system that solely provides flood control. We need a river system that will help cool communities as temperatures rise, provide habitat for diverse wildlife, increase local water resiliency, and serve as a greenspace where communities can recreate and reconnect with nature and culture.”

I don’t think I’ve posted a single thing of my own on this site in years. I haven’t posted on Instagram since July. I tweet, and that’s about it. So, new year, new habits I guess.
Here I am a while back last year. I love that people are posting and being active on here again. Hello to people who don’t know me 👋🏼
