The Los Angeles Conservation Corps Announces the new Paddle the LA River Program for 2017.

The new season presents changes of distinction.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 18, 2017 / -- Los Angeles, CA—May 18, 2017—the Los Angeles Conservation Corps proudly announces Paddle the LA River 2017. There are distinctive differences between this season and previous years.

ϖ The Paddle the LA River program will only be open to the general public on select Saturdays this summer. The Corps will use the other days of the week to provide youth kayaking tours, monitor the environmental health of the paddle setting, and to conduct river cleanups in order to enhance the paddling experience.

ϖ For the first time, The LA Conservation Corps is renting kayaks (and gear) for self-guided tours down the natural-bottom stretch of the LA River. A brief safety orientation will be provided before assisting departure.

ϖ The Guided Tours are still available, but are offered for private parties on a limited basis. The LA Conservation Corps is offering three time slots on select Saturdays with fourteen (14) slots available. Each trip will have three certified guides and include all the necessary equipment as well as safety orientation and a brief history of the river.

ϖ Los Angeles experienced substantial rain fall this past winter. This means the water level of the LA River is more conducive to paddling than in previous years. The weather also altered the landscape of this journey making it feel new.

The LA Conservation Corps could not present Paddle the LA River 2017 without our partners. The Corps has partnered with Urban Semillas, Pacoima Beautiful, Heal the Bay, and LA Sanitation to develop a high caliber recreation-education kayaking program for the public.

Kayaking will depart from the Sepulveda Basin. Please contact: for detailed information and a complete list of frequently asked questions.

Tickets to rent kayaks for the summer season are on sale now! Book your kayak rentals at today!
