Santa Monica Public Library presents #SaveLACougars: The Story of P-22 and the Quest to Build a Wildlife Crossing on Sunday, September 9, at 2 p.m. in the Main Library’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.

Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, California Regional Executive Director for the National Wildlife Federation and leader of the #SaveLACougars campaign, tells the story of P-22, the famous Hollywood cougar. Mountain lions of the Santa Monica Mountains face extinction due to being trapped by area freeways. Learn how to be a good neighbor to a mountain lion and hear about the campaign to build the largest wildlife crossing in the country. Take a photo with P-22 (or his likeness!) at our selfie station. A book sale and signing follows the program. Ticketed event. One free ticket per person available one hour before the program, outside the Auditorium.

This program is free and open to all ages. Seating is limited and on a first-arrival basis. The Santa Monica Public Library is wheelchair accessible.
