Amigos de Los Rios is a 503(c)3 Legacy Design & Build firm that has been working on a landscape-scale conservation effort entitled - "The Emerald Necklace Vision for Los Angeles County," since its inception in 2003. This Vision, adapted from previous Los Angeles greening efforts by Frederick Law Olmsted, calls for an interconnected system of green infrastructure, community open space, and habitat enhancements alongside our regional rivers that flow through the Los Angeles Basin.
In addition to the LA River, Amigos de Los Rios is building connective green infrastructure alongside the San Gabriel, Rio Hondo, Arroyo Seco, and many other tributaries that flow from the San Gabriel Mountains through primarily underserved communities that suffer from health issues connected to a lack of open space and emissions exposure. Funded almost entirely by competitive regional, State, and Federal environmental grants, our community-based approach to green space has yielded over 40 completed projects throughout the Metro LA Region; planted thousands of trees and native shrubs planted; and improved the lives thousands more children, young adults, and sensitive populations who are fighting for their rights to clean air, water, and public space.
Our mission is to create an “Emerald Necklace” green infrastructure network, an Emerald Necklace Vision Map of parks and trails throughout the Los Angeles Basin to connect the Mountains to the Sea, and in doing so, improve access to recreation and link Southern Californian communities to nature and each other, expand access to safe non-vehicular transportation, create culturally meaningful public spaces within blighted communities, and protect urban communities from the harmful effects posed by climate change.
