Friends of Griffith Park will join an array of non-profits, government agencies, and individuals hosting booths showcasing the great work being done for Los Angeles wildlife.

At the festival, learn how to create Certified Wildlife Habitats in your own backyard, school or business.

John Griffith of the California Conservation Corps will lead his famous BioBlitz Dance with crew members on the stage, and staff from the Natural History Museum will participate in recording wildlife sightings during the day.

Ranger Rick and P-22 will both be making appearances, along with several other celebrities and distinguished guests.

      Hey Mark… the event takes place in the grassy area directly across the street from the Ranger Station… the best way to get over is to bike through the park.

    I have a friend who is house-bound but has followed P-22’s story since its inception. Will there be coverage of the event available online, either live or as a link afterwards?

      I know there will be lots of coverage, both from the Friends, NWF and others which we’ll post after the event.
