Since the late ’90s, when Lewis Macadams and Friends of the L.A. River got authorities to halt the DWP’s annual bulldozing of the River bed, this area of the River has spontaneously developed into beautiful, life-filled wilderness. Many species of birds and fish are present–as are trees, reeds and medicinal plants growing from the sandbar islands pictured here.
