We are participating in the City Nature Challenge – a worldwide competition in which a bunch of different cities compete against each other to see who is documenting nature and urban biodiversity better. It runs from April 26 to April 29. On Saturday, April 27, join a National Park Service ranger on a guided hike at Griffith Park.

Directions:

Exact trail is Old LA Zoo Trail. Parking will be at the Merry G0-Round parking area which is near the Ranger Station (4730 Crystal Springs Drive). If you’re driving north on Crystal Springs Drive, make a left on the first street where the Ranger Station is that leads to the Merry Go-Round parking lot.
