Living Waters of Ballona Creek

The watershed of Ballona Creek, a nearly 9-mile long waterway in Los Angeles, is confined almost entirely to concrete ditches (what I call a "pipeshed"). The wetlands of its watershed are starved for water. Mentored by keepers Jeanette Vosberg is leading efforts to change the Ballona watershed from a pipeshed back to a watershed.
