Wild LA Explore the Amazing Nature in and Around Los Angeles
L.A. may have a reputation as a concrete jungle, but in reality, it is incredibly biodiverse, teeming with an amazing array of wildlife. You just need to know where to find them. Wild L.A.-published in conjunction with the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County-is the guidebook residents and visitors have been waiting for. Equal parts natural history, field guide, and trip planner, this fun-filled book has something for everyone. You’ll learn about the factors shaping local nature-including floods, fire, and climate-and find profiles of over one hundred easy-to-spot species, from sea turtles to rare plants to Hollywood's famous mountain lion, P-22. Also included are day trips that detail which natural wonders you can experience where, on hiking trails, in public parks, and in your own backyard.
