In September 2018, we hosted the State of the Los Angeles River Watershed Symposium. The Symposium was supported by the Los Angeles River Watershed Monitoring Program (LARWMP) and served as an opportunity to highlight the wealth of ecological and water quality data collected along the river.


In the latest issue of WatershedWise we highlight the forces that shape ecological health in the LA River Watershed and the perspective of individuals that are working to understand and improve it.

Topics include:

  • Forces Shaping Ecological Health, Wendy Katagi
