Public Works undertook the Fifth Annual Earth Day Event
on April 19, 2001. Local students, from Carpenter Elementary
Avenue, were involved in designing the landscaping of the
south side of the Los Angeles River between Laurel Canyon
and Radford Avenue (adjacent to CBS Studios), in Studio City.
Earth Day consisted of planting 12 native trees and 100 shrubs,
while the overall landscaping will be completed as a more
comprehensive project in the following months. The project was
organized through a collaborative effort between the County of
Los Angeles, Studio City Residents Association, The River Project,
and Carpenter Elementary School with the generous support of North
East Trees, Trust for Public Land, City of Los Angeles Department of
Water and Power, and Body Rush Fitness Center.
