• Urban Wildlife Conservation: Los Angeles | Restoration + Recreation

    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.​ ​For more information on our Urban Wildlife Conservation Program, visit www.fws.gov/urban.

  • LA throws 96 million 'shade balls' at its water shortage — and it's mesmerizing | Mashable

    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 ...
