Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 29, 2011. Work crews in Elysian Valley had the tough task of removing Arundo from the LA River and hauling it up the steep banks by hand. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Arundo is a non-native, highly invasive and combustible giant grass threatening ecosystems in California waterways and hillsides like the Red Car Property.
