The Glendale Narrows section of the LA River doesn't have a cement bottom. That means plants and trees can grow there, attracting nearby wildlife. It's a nice place for a socially distant stroll during the pandemic. Lila Higgins of LA’s Natural History Museum gives a virtual tour.
“When you go down in the Glendale Narrows, you can see that there’s some cement that goes down into the edges. But then in the middle, there’s all these rocks and kind of islands with vegetation growing on it, and so many different animals,” says Higgins.
