LA River History with Environmental Writer, Jenny Price
Jenny Price, the author of Flight Maps: Adventures with Nature in Modern America, is an environmental writer and L.A. river tour guide. Price believes that a lack of public consciousness is one of the most serious problems facing the river--without a community to back legislation and organizations, much of the hard work put into protecting the river is diminished. By leading tours down around the banks, Jenny hopes that getting people to realize the river is more than a water drain under the freeway will amplify the importance of the river to the city as a whole.
