Wild LA: Explore the Amazing Nature in and around Los Angeles

By Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County

Los Angeles may have a reputation as a concrete jungle, but in reality, it is incredibly biodiverse, teaming with an amazing array of animals and plants. You just need to know where to find them. Wild LA—published in conjunction with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County—is the guidebook residents and visitors have been waiting for. Equal parts natural history, field guide, and trip planner, this fun-filled book has something for everyone. First, you’ll learn how past events shaped the city. Next, profiles of 101 key species highlight the region’s hidden gems, from sea turtles to rare plants to Hollywood's famous mountain lion, P-22. Also included are day trips that detail where natural wonders can be experienced on hiking trails, in public parks, and in your own backyard.
