Los Angeles may have a reputation as a concrete jungle, but in reality, it is incredibly biodiverse, teeming 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. You’ll learn about the factors shaping LA nature—including floods, fire, and climate—and find profiles of over one hundred local species, from sea turtles to rare plants to Hollywood's famous mountain lion, P-22. Also included are day trips that detail which natural wonders you can experience where, on hiking trails, in public parks, and in your own backyard.
