Inspired by our August guest speakers from the The River Project and CLAW, here are three actions you can do this month to support biodiversity and wildlife:
1. Turn Off The Lights!
Light pollution can disrupt the natural behavior of wildlife in our area. Simply turning off your outdoors lights when not in use is an easy action to reduce lighting impact. When you are using outdoor lights, keep them LOW, SHIELDED, and LONG. Click Here for more information about light pollution and responsible outdoor lighting solutions.
2. Plant Native:
For a trifecta of benefits, plant native California plants that are drought-tolerant, fire-resistant, and good for wildlife! Click Here for a list of fire-resistant California natives, or enter your address on CalScape.org to see all the plants that are native to your area.
3. Visit The River:
Despite humans' best efforts to control the L.A. River, nature has still found some ways to claim its rightful place along it. Taking a walk, riding a bike, or sitting on a bench in certain spots alongside the river, you’ll hear an orchestra of birds, smell the sweet bouquet of native plants, and feel a cool breeze flowing down the channel. Experiencing the potential of this beautiful river will make you want to restore it even more. Click Here for more information about visiting the L.A. River with downloadable maps including the Upper River.
