Join Jorge Ochoa for a hike and a talk

On Jul 1, 2019

On Nov. 9th, 2018, 63 acres of remote Condor Canyon burned in Griffith Park. Rangers and fire fighters heroically stopped the fire before it was able to gather momentum.

At the same time, the Woolsey Fire exploded into its second day.

To highlight the sensitivity of Griffith Park, Jorge Ochoa will be leading a hike on Sunday, July 7th at 8:30 AM
Hike begins at Live Steamers (entrance on Zoo Drive)
Please RSVP for this hike by going to

The hike is a tie-in to Jorge’s July 11th talk on the latest science – how fires regularly affect this vast wilderness.

The 2018 brush fire gives us another living laboratory to study the effects of fire devastation and nature’s ability to recover.
