Two L.A. River Paddle Programs Open Sign Ups

Overwhelming demand for tickets caused server problems for one group Monday night. A second operator opens registration at 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Two groups will offer tours down a stretch of the Los Angeles River this summer.

That means trips will be offered seven days a week starting July 21 through at least mid-September.

L.A. River Expeditions, , got notice from the Army Corps of Engineers late last week that it could run trips on Sundays and Mondays.

Overwhelming demand for those trips created computer issues almost immediately Monday night when registration opened.

Registration for those opens at 7 a.m. on Tuesday.

The combined efforts will allow for more than 2,000 individual trips for participants compared to 260 last year.

The two-mile route runs through the San Fernando Valley southeast from Balboa Boulevard in Encino through the Sepulveda Dam area.

Both tour groups involve players from the

The LA Conservation Corps is working with the Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority, Friends of the Los Angeles River, Urban Semillas, and The River Project.

Meantime, L.A. River Expeditions has partnered with the Fresno-based San Joaquin River Stewardship Program.

@Gumball Saint--You are right about the Elysian Valley and Frogtown, which in my mind--perhaps incorrectly--I see as extensions of Silver Lake and Echo Park.

@RIP -- Thanks for the clarification: that is a lot of trips, 36 alone by L.A. River Expeditions and I'll bet at least two and a half times that by Paddle the LA River.
