Arroyo Seco Foundation, Los Angeles, California


The Arroyo Seco River is one of the most diverse in California, beginning high in the San Gabriel Mountains, passing by a number of important L.A. landmarks, and ending in a heavily urbanized area of Los Angeles. The Arroyo Seco Foundation was revived in 1989 to “revive and enhance the Arroyo Seco River and its watershed…” This report was commisioned to provide an understanding of the history and the existing conditions of the watershed, to outline valuable restoration projects, and to recommend programmatic themes that can be applied across projects. It closes with recommendations for next steps and identification of areas in need of further research.
