    Mark your calendars and let us take you to the river this October to reveal its memories, stories, and plans for the 21st century.

    Conference Schedule:

    FRIDAY  4:00 to 7:00 p.m.  LA CASITA DEL ARROYO, PASADENA

    We'll start with a happy hour gathering at La Casita del Arroyo located above the Arroyo in Pasadena where we will be introduced to the subject of our weekend. Presentations by our Sunday morning tour guides.

    SATURDAY  8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   RIVER EXPLORATION    

    We'll enjoy a continental breakfast together at The Garland Hotel. Joe Edmiston, Executive Director of the Mountains Recreation & Conservancy Authority, will be our keynote speaker.

    Next, we'll board a bus for a series of stops and talks along the river. We'll have box lunches from Spoke Cafe, which we will enjoy outdoors. Speakers and a walking tour will be presented by the Los Angeles Conservancy and FoLAR (Friends of the Los Angeles River) at spots along the river. The bridges that span the LA River are iconic, and link communities on both sides of the vast concrete channel. We will experience some of the bridges; others are unique bridges designed for use by pedestrians, equestrians, and cyclists, which we will enjoy on foot. We will be presented with a private tour of the Taylor Yard G2 River Park Project by Michael Affeldt, Director of the LARiverWorks.

    Dinner:  Catch up with old friends, and make new ones at the river-adjacent Italian restaurant Ca' del Sole, in Toluca Lake.

    SUNDAY   9:30 to noon   THE SEPULVEDA BASIN

    You won't want to miss Sunday's event! There will be a morning carpool excursion to Sepulveda Basin with Tilly Hinton, founder and curator of LA River X, a digital humanities project that has been gathering and publishing people's river stories since 2019. Along with Tilly, will be tour guides: LA River X alumni Fred Kaplan, John Kosta, and Peter Bennett. This area of the river is surprisingly natural and verdant, and tour goers will have an opportunity to truly experience the river up close. The Sepulveda Basin is one of three areas along the LA River with a soft bottom (vs. concrete).
