The Los Angeles River Master Plan Earth Day 1998 event, sponsored by Public Works,
Supervisor Zev Yaroslavksy, Councilman Mike Feuer, and Mayor Richard Riordan's Office,
was held in Studio City along the south bank of the Los Angeles River near Whitsett
Avenue. Thirty students from a local intermediate school volunteered in the
planting of 61 sycamore and rhus lancea trees along the riverbank.
More than 25 businesses donated over $10,000 to the day-long planting event.
Crews from the California Youth Authority currently maintain the site.
