Several people at a rally for the Los Angeles River Saturday held up homemade signs that said “Alternative 20,” which is the name of one plan proposed in a recent U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study . The $1.08-billion project would add around 30 acres of wetlands to the Verdugo Wash in Glendale and widen the river. Advocates say the plan would support wildlife between the river and the Verdugo Mountains and protect the current ecosystem. Other plans, including a $453-million effort, leave out the Verdugo Wash and other areas, including the Los Angeles State Historic Park in downtown Los Angeles.
