Club Kayaks LA River

On June 13th, seven members of the HPGC (and one son - Alex) paddled the 'lazy' Sepulveda Basin portion of the Los Angeles River organized by the Conservation committee. This is a natural bottom, non-concretized section near the Tillman Water Reclamation Plant and Lake Balboa, and quiet water compared to the Glendale Narrows section kayaked by the club a few years ago. We encountered blue herons and their nest, hummingbirds, ducks and ducklings; lush banks green with various native willows, non-native castorbean, arundo, catalpas, and oleander; small fry fish - likley mosquitofish; shopping carts, clothes, and plastic bags flying 10’ high in trees, a result of the recent rains. We paddle
