The Wetlands were created by the natural flooding of the Los Angeles River, San Gabriel River and the Santa Ana River.
"The river provided a source of water and food for the Gabrielino Indians for thousands of years prior to the arrival of the Spanish. The Gabrielinos were hunters and gatherers who lived primarily off the fish, small mammals and acorns from the abundant oak trees along the river's path. There were at least 45 Gabrielino villages located near the Los Angeles River, concentrated in the San Fernando Valley, and Elysian Valley in what is present day Glendale." P.
