Amigos de los Ríos formed an “Equipo del Oasis - Oasis Team” of local residents to: learn about riparian ecosystems, train in riparian habitat restoration, and organize “Conozca a su Vecino Natural Know Your Natural Neighbor” community clean up and planting days to initiate restoration at the confluence of Alhambra Wash and the Rio Hondo. Over 30 cubic meters of trash and 10 cubic meters of Arundo was removed, and 250 local residents were educated about their watershed!
