The Los Angeles River is nearly 50 miles long weaving through the entire city winding its way to the ocean. Unfortunately many residents of Los Angeles don't even realize the city has a river let alone that it plays a vital role in the urban communities it passes through. Thanks to partnerships between the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Los Angeles Conservation Corps and Friends of the Los Angeles River, the river is bringing new opportunities to a new generation of young adults, recreation opportunities to the citizens and a new era of revitalization and wildlife conservation.

Los Angeles is throwing shade at its water problem — literally. The city has deployed a total of 96 million "shade balls" into the LA Reservoir in an effort to save 300 million gallons of water. California is currently in the midst of its worst drought on record, and all hands are on deck to conserve the state's precious water supply. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, for its part, is contributing to the effort by rolling out thousands of small, black plastic balls to protect water quality by "preventing sunlight-triggered chemical reactions, deterring birds and other wildlife, and protecting water from rain and wind-blown dust," according to a press release from LA Mayor Eric Garcetti. http://www.mashable.com LIKE us on FACEBOOK: http://facebook.com/mashable.video FOLLOW ...

Anchored in the south by the San Diego National Wildlife Refuge Complex and to the north by the Hopper Mountain Refuge Complex, the SoCal Urban Wildlife Refuge Project reaches deep into Los Angeles’ diverse urban core where the revitalization of the Los Angeles River is bringing back nature to urban residents. The SoCal Project is part of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Urban Wildlife Conservation Program. With eighty percent of Americans now living in cities, there is an increasing challenge of how to connect current and future generations with National Wildlife Refuges and the outdoors. The goal of the Urban Wildlife Conservation Program is to reach into communities to find ways to connect urban youth with America’s natural wonders.
