Project: Park Enhancement and Anti-Displacement Project

Description: Restoration and community engagement project at three Los Angeles River pocket parks that are owned by the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority (MRCA).

Native plants are to be grown with locally sourced seed, for planting in the parks. For Tax purposes: this is a grant to a non state-related entity with improvements on MRCA property which is a joint powers authority of the Conservancy and considered a state related entity.
