THE STORY OF 

AMIGOS DE LOS RIOS

Over the past seventeen years, AMIGOS has proven our commitment to environmental justice by improving the built environment and bolstering civic engagement in under-served communities of the San Gabriel Valley and Gateway Cities most burdened by urban development and most in need of green infrastructure solutions.

THE EMERALD NECKLACE

AMIGOS has developed innovative strategies and regional plans to strategically engage a diverse spectrum of urban stakeholders with programming and projects that improve public health, ecosystem health, and resiliency to climate change by instilling and empowering community members with shared values of environmental stewardship, cultural awareness, and the power to affect positive change.
