Rio de Los Angeles State Park Maintenance and Infill Planting

Project Description

Rio de Los Angeles State Park consists of a riparian habitat in the buffer zones, and a created wetland / riparian habitat in the central area.  This natural area is surrounded by athletic facilities. The wetland is a low lying area designed to receive irrigation and stormwater runoff from the rest of the park and surrounding areas. Water collects and slowly infiltrates into the soil replenishing underground reserves while sustaining the wetland.

Project Funded by:

Cypress Park, Los Angeles



When our work began, maintenance of the riparian and wetland areas had been largely neglected for over a year. As a result, weeds and invasive plants were rampant, and  native plants were struggling. North East Trees took over the maintenance of this natural area, and over the course of two years, we planted over 250 trees and 600 native plants in various areas of the park. We removed invasive plants and nurtured the native plantings resulting in a thriving Southern California wildlife habitat.
