Author Joe Linton Discusses the History and Issues of the LA River
An active advocate for the restoration and revitalization of the river for over 20 years, Joe Linton began leading monthly walks along the Los Angeles River in 1998 to increase awareness about it and its surroundings. After years of exploration into the river's landscape and urban ecosystem, Linton self-published the river's preeminent guidebook, Down by the Los Angeles River. The guide, along with his in-depth and often humorous blog, have become indispensable tools for those interested in learning about, exploring and engaging with the Los Angeles River.
