Saturday was a day for spring-cleaning along the Los Angeles River.
Friends of the Los Angeles River organized 4,000 volunteers from Long Beach to the San Fernando Valley as part of the 2006 Great Los Angeles River Cleanup, or La Gran Limpieza
Cleanup locations included the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena, Atwater Village, Griffith Park and the Tujunga Wash.
P.S. - The LA River cleanup volunteer featured on CBS2 seems like she could be the same author and LA-based specialist, Dr. Valerie Ulene, daughter of medical guru Art Ulene, who also files health reports for LA Times and KTLA. Nice crossover!
