Jorge Ochoa Discusses the Intricacies of Griffith Park’s Flora and Fauna

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.
