Description



About the Book



A dynamic, fact-filled guide to the natural world of Los Angeles from the experts at the Natural History Museum.



Book Synopsis



"Put on your hiking shoes, pack your binoculars, and rediscover the City of Angels." --Westways Magazine

Los Angeles may have a reputation as a concrete jungle, but in reality, it's full of amazing wildlife. You just need to know where to find it! Equal parts natural history, field guide, and trip planner, Wild LA has something for everyone. It looks at the factors that shape local nature--including fire, floods, and climate--and profiles over 100 local species, from easy-to-spot squirrels and praying mantids to more elusive green sea turtles, bighorn sheep, and mountain lions. Also included are descriptions of day trips that help you explore natural wonders on hiking trails, in public parks, and in your own backyard.



From the Back Cover



Get ready for the field trip of a lifetime, led by the experts from the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County. Discover mammoths underneath Wilshire Boulevard, glimpse bobcats in Griffith Park, and stalk red-eared slider turtles in a Franklin Canyon pond. Meet dozens of local residents, mostly of the animal and plant kind. Equal parts nature guide and trip planner, Wild LA unveils the hidden nature in every park and canyon--and even your own neighborhood.

About the Author



The Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County include the Natural History Museum in Exposition Park (NHM), the La Brea Tar Pits in mid-Wilshire/Hancock Park, and the William S. Hart Museum in Newhall. They operate under the collective vision to inspire wonder, discovery, and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds. The museums hold one of the world's most extensive and valuable collections of natural and cultural history--more than 35 million objects. Using these collections for groundbreaking scientific and historic research, the museums also incorporate them into on- and offsite nature and culture exploration in L.A. neighborhoods, and in a slate of community science programs. This creates a new natural history museum experience that explores the past, but increasingly addresses the present and the future.
