P-22 Day and Urban Wildlife Week

Flyer UWW 2017October15 22

Please Join Us to Celebrate P-22 Day and Urban Wildlife Week
Don't miss a community-wide festival celebrating LA's most famous mountain lion and the rest of our urban wildlife, October 15-22! 


Some Highlights: 


Topanga Wildlife Day! (Thursday, October 19th)

A P-22 Celebration at Topanga Elementary, a certified Schoolyard Habitat
Screening of "The Cat That Changed America," Thursday evening (~7 pm). 
National Wildlife Federation (NWF) Regional Director, Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, will be on hand to answer questions and share her personal insights. 

Student Learning Opportunities, including a "Bioblitz Day" - led by Natural History Museum Scientists

Scientists from the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles will lead students across LAUSD schools (roughly 120 schools) in a survey of their campus' biodiversity. 

A Hiking Heyday! Follow in the Footsteps of P-22 (October 18-22)

For 5 days and more than 50 miles, NWF’s Regional Director, Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, and many partners, including the Topanga Town Council, Topanga Chamber of Commerce, and the Topanga Creek Watershed Committee, will trek through the Santa Monica Mountains and Los Angeles, hiking a similar path to the one that P-22 may have followed. This journey, tracked virtually by millions worldwide, will illustrate how the promise of connectivity is integral not just for the future of mountain lions, but for all wildlife such as salamanders, birds, and butterflies. Anyone interested in joining in the hike, please reach out to local CWH Habitat Leader, Carrie Carrier (This email address is being protected from spambots.

(some portions of the hike may be partially restricted due to hiking conditions and/or for safety reasons).

P-22 Day and Festival! (Saturday, October 22nd) at Griffith Park

This community-wide festival, which is the culmination of Urban Wildlife Week, honors the city’s most famous mountain lion and will include a number of fun activities such as music and dance performances, an animal puppet show, a children’s art contest, nature hikes with park rangers, demonstration gardens, and much, much more! Ranger Rick and P-22 will both be making appearances, along with several other celebrities and distinguished guests. 

If you are a non-profit organization, government agency, educational institution, researcher or artist, free exhibit space is available to showcase your work on urban wildlife, fostering connections to the natural world, or promoting coexistence with our wild neighbors.
