There’s a vast, amazing natural world in Griffith Park and Long Beach Community College professor Jorge Ochoa spells out the various flora and fauna inhabiting this urban wilderness smack dab in the middle of the Los Angeles community. For Jorge, it’s all about the intricacies within the ecosystem, the profound brilliance of this vast wilderness, and the role humanity has played and continues to play in supporting and appreciating the beauty and power of nature.

As Gerry points out, it’s hard to keep Jorge away from Griffith Park, and we’re happy he’s always willing to act as a host on these hikes.
