On Sep 28, 2017

Last year’s P-22 Day proved to be an exciting and informative event for all who attended.
This year the turnout will be even greater…

P-22 Day Festival on Sunday, October 22, 2017 / 11-4 pm

Through a series of events spanning over a week (Oct. 18 – Oct. 22)
and multiple cities in the LA area, we will convene an array of partners
connecting wildlife and people to one other in a welcoming, inclusive community event
that celebrates diverse perspectives about the natural world.
Join an array of non-profits, including
National Wildlife Federation California & P22 Mountain Lion of Hollywood
plus a broad array of government agencies, and individuals showcasing the great work being done
for Los Angeles wildlife.

The fun takes place at Shane’s Inspiration Universal Playground
(across Crystal Springs Dr. from Griffith Park Ranger Station)

FRIENDS OF GRIFFITH PARK WILL BE IN BOOTH #19… Please come introduce yourselves!
