We take for granted the presence of Rampart division police in Echo Park.
But have you ever been down to see their digs at the new LAPD Rampart division station on Sixth Street?
It's pretty darn spiffy looking, with a nice green lawn and a super-modern exterior.
Here's a great excuse to drop by: a morning of tree-planting on June 3 around the station and the nearby neighborhood.
The trees come from Million Trees LA and sponsor Korean Area. The planting starts at 9 a.m.
Contact Senior Lead Officer Lewis Ford directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. Or email Lisa Sarno at Million Trees LA at Lisa.Sarno@lacity.org.
Twenty-five fruit trees will be up for private home adoption that day at no cost. Adopters must, however, plant the trees on private property within the city of Los Angeles.
Addresses will be verified by ID, driver's license or water bill.
