Kern River Conservancy was founded in the summer of 2013 when Los Angeles resident, Gary Ananian decided it was time for someone to stand up and care for the Kern River. After spending many summer adventures with his friends on the Kern, Gary grew impatient and frustrated with all the trash and vandalism that was impacting the river. After several discussions with his close friends and the Forest Service, Kern River Conservancy was born. Gary’s background was hospitality management in Hollywood’s bar and nightclub industry. Gary had absolutely no education or experience in environmental conservation, but he had the skills to communicate with anyone and his social media experience was strong from promoting nightclubs and events in Hollywood.
