To commemorate what is the 53rd annual Earth Day and " In the spirit of helping the planet and thinking local to
impact the global" members of Harry and Meghan's Archewell Foundation team took part in a cleanup of the LA
River in partnership with LAWaterkeeper .
Los Angeles Waterkeeper’s mission is to fight for the health of the region’s waterways, and for sustainable, equitable and climate-friendly water supplies.
The Archewell team, under the guidance of LA Waterkeeper, spent the morning helping to clean up along the LA River, a river that it 2022 was named as one of America's most endangered rivers.
According to the LAWaterkeeper website: The LA River represents one of the few remaining freshwater
habitats for native species in Los Angeles, yet the LA River has been treated for far too long as a polluted flood control
channel instead of a living river that could provide a host of benefits to the
Los Angeles region.
On the Archewell website, Meghan and Harry direct readers to the Earth Day organization website to find events near where we live where we also can do our little bit to help the planet.
