Join LA 3rd Platoon in partnership with Friends of the LA River to beautify Compton Creek.
Compton Creek is a major tributary of the LA River, and the last major tributary before the River ends her 51-mile journey at the Pacific Ocean in Long Beach. Situated in what used to be the LA River floodplain, Compton Creek was historically characterized by freshwater marshes, willow and cottonwood trees.
Join us for this great community event!

Inclement Weather Plan :
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
