Don Holtz’s exhibit Mountain Light is a celebration and show of gratitude for the Santa Monica Mountains and the peace of mind they’ve brought him over the last thirteen years of living among them. His goal with this portfolio is quite simple: through these photographs, he wants to share with others the same stunning stillness he felt when making them.
A portion of the funds from art sales will be used to further the arts in Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
This is a free event with free parking.

Come help us remove crayfish from your creeks and streams! Crayfish are a non-native species to California, and they’re considered invasive because they cause quite a bit of damage to the aquatic ecosystems. They prey on native species, reduce water quality, and cause problems with creek bed erosion. We need your help in trapping and removing the crayfish as well as picking up trash along the stream.
PARKING: You are free to park anywhere within reason. This is near a residential area, so please be respectful of the folks who live there!
