By now you’re no doubt familiar with the life story of P-22, the Hollywood mountain lion who’s made a home...
CELEBRATE P-22 DAY!
In 2016, the City of Los Angeles officially declared October 22nd, as P-22 Day.
Born in the Santa Monica Mountains, P-22 made an incredible journey across two of the busiest freeways in America—the 101 and the 405—to find a home in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. P-22’s story is fueling a new conservation about wildlife’s urban integration and winning the hearts of Angelinos.
P-22 Day is the culmination of Urban Wildlife Week and the 50-mile hike lead by the National Wildlife Federation’s Beth Pratt-Bergstrom from the Santa Monica Mountains to Griffith Park, a journey that retraces the steps of P-22. The hikers will be welcomed to Griffith Park at the P-22 festival where our supporters join us in celebrating our cougars and learning more about creating urban-wildlife connectivity.
