Wild LA: Explore the Amazing Nature in and around Los Angeles
You would be hard-pressed to find a group of people whose enthusiasm for nature is as infectious as the four authors of Wild LA.
Los Angeles Times
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.

"You would be hard-pressed to find a group of people whose enthusiasm for nature is as infectious as the four authors of Wild LA."
—Los Angeles Times
"This travel companion will shed new light on all that flourishes and flowers, or creeps and crawls in the vast urban-yet-still-wild sprawl of the city and surrounding area."
"Put on your hiking shoes, pack your binoculars, and rediscover the City of Angels."
"Whether you’re new to nature or an experienced hiker, just visiting or a lifelong Angeleno, I can almost guarantee you’ll learn something new and fascinating about the world around you after thumbing through Wild LA. And you’ll never look at the city the same way again."
