Every April, Friends of the LA River organizes the Great LA River Cleanup, La Gran Limpieza, one of the most significant environmental stewardship events in the region and officially the largest urban river cleanup in the country. Situated in what used to be the LA River floodplain, Compton Creek was historically characterized by freshwater marshes, willows and cottonwood trees. Today, most of the 8.5 mile creek is channelized where you are likely to see stilts, killdeer, mallards and perhaps even a heron.
