Lunch, installation of Officers, and a Special Program: Naturalist & award-winning author, Charles Hood presents:  Urban Nature Today: Are the backyards of Los Angeles really the new Serengeti?

Join naturalist and award-winning author Charles Hood as he helps celebrate the amazing diversity of life in and around greater Los Angeles, including some surprising glimpses into the secret life of our own Pacific Palisades “back country”. From non-native geckos to P-22 (the mountain lion who lives in Griffith Park), the L.A. basin is a wonderland of surprise, juxtaposition, loss, hope, and renewal. Share your own encounters with backyard wildlife and learn to appreciate the city with your brand-new nature eyes.
