Friends of the LA River

Friends of the Los Angeles River (FoLAR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in 1986. We envision a verdant Los Angeles River that supports vulnerable communities in climate adaptation. The River will be transformed into a dynamic, functioning ecosystem that reduces flood risk, cleans the air, cools temperatures, and supports the biodiversity essential to our collective wellbeing. FoLAR builds capacity for communities, students, and future leaders to advocate for nature, climate, and equity on the Los Angeles River.



Your gift will power our environmental education programs which deliver place-based eco-education to students and youth across LA, support our policy and advocacy initiatives focused on ensuring equity and climate resilience along the LA River, and help us to engage community members and connect the public to the River and all it has to offer.
