Saturday at Noon
Toronto is often perceived to be a flat geography, but the truth is that civil engineering has hidden a vast network of river ravines from our sight. Many people are unaware of this bounty of green spaces that add up to 30 times the area of NYC’s Central Park. We hope to change the way people see the nature we’re fortunate to have in our midst. These oases from the swirl of urban life will become even more important to our quality of life as our city continues to grow.
LA River Panel:
Join us after the movie for a panel discussion on how the lessons from Toronto’s Ravines can be applied to the LA River.
Panelists include: Joe Linton, author Down by the Los Angeles River; Jim Kermath LA River tour guide; Amalia Merino, LARiverWorks, Office of Mayor Eric Garcetti;
