URBAN WILDLIFE WEEK
For an entire week, multiple cities throughout the Los Angeles area will participate in our second annual Urban Wildlife Week, uniting people through a love for wildlife and learning to coexist. An array of partners will help us create educational events, live videos and more.
50 MILE HIKE
The 50-mile hike is inspired by P-22, the famous Hollywood mountain lion who miraculously made his way across the 405 and the 101 from the Santa Monica Moutains to Griffith Park. During the hike we will retrace P-22’s strenuous 50-mile journey, stopping for some fun events along the way. Join us by checking out the full calendar of events and tracking hikers on the map!
