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.
