Anahuak Youth Sports Association and The City Project planted about fifteen trees along the trail at Rio de Los Angeles State Park on March 9, 2013, at a workshop hosted by North East Trees and others.
Children and parents from Anahuak worked together to help benefit and beautify the park where they play soccer, picnic, hike, run, relax, and get fit. Parents and children volunteered to water the trees regularly when they go to soccer games. North East Trees presented a tree care workshop and donated oak trees and wildflower seeds. After a few hours of hard work, children and parents left with a sense of accomplishment and a smile on their face.
Together Anahuak and The City Project are improving equal justice, democracy, and livability for all. We use sports as an organizing tool to bring people together to create the kind of community where they want to live and raise children. With diverse allies we helped stop an industrial development to create Rio de Los Angeles State Park.
