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.

Million Trees LA plants trees throughout Los Angeles without direct support from the City's General Fund. We partner with private corporate sponsors and local non-profit tree planting organizations. This video highlights the efforts of two of our partners: JMB Realty and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps. JMB Realty invested in MTLA and our urban forest in the middle of the Great Recession, and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps employs young people from some of LA's most under served communities. This partnership serves as a model for the nation. It allows us to grow and sustain our urban forest while investing in our communities.
In spite of being one of the most unique works of art, the Watts Towers of Simon Rodia are on The Cultural Landscape Foundation's Landslide list of threatened and at-risk landscapes and landscape features. Built by the Italian immigrant Simon Rodia between 1921 to 1955, the Watts Towers site in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles features three main towers and seven other sculptures that he constructed using salvaged steel, wire mesh, cement and a range of found and donated objects such as broken glass, seashells, generic pottery and tile, and many pieces of twentieth century American ceramics. In this video we meet up with Dr. Frank Preusser, Senior Conservation Scientist at the Conservation Center of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), who provides us with an introduction to ...

The Ambassador Hotel and its once-famous Coconut Grove nightclub in Los Angeles was the scene of protracted litigation to save the structure after the hotel closed. The L.A. Conservancy - a building conservation group - ultimately lost and the Los Angeles Unified School District tore down the hotel in 2006 to build a new school. However, the Coconut Grove part of the structure is supposed to become the school auditorium, although the degree to which this will occur is uncertain. The hotel was the scene of the assassination of Senator Robert F. Kennedy in 1968. The clip was made before the demolition but after the hotel closed.
