Please Join Topanga Elementary Charter School and The National Wildlife Federation at our Urban Wildlife Week kick off event!
The National Wildlife Federation in partnership with The Natural History Museum and presenting sponsor the Annenberg Foundation will end its first day of hiking on October 19 at Topanga Elementary Charter School. Topanga Elementary is the first school in the Los Angles area to earn the certified Wildlife Habitat designation by The National Wildlife Federation.
Beth Pratt, California’s Director of The National Wildlife Federation, will retrace P-22’s trek over 4 days starting October 19 at Liberty Canyon and ending on the 22nd at Griffith Park. The walk will physically and virtually trace the likely path that P-22 took in leaving his birth place in the Santa Monica Mountains to reach his current home in Griffith Park.
Beth’s trek is designed to raise awareness of the #SaveLACougars effort for the construction of what will be the largest wildlife crossing in the world. The crossing’s planned location is at Liberty Canyon in Agoura Hills. The bridge’s architect, and proud Topanga Elementary Science Committee member, Clark Stevens, will be on hand to discuss his concept and the initiative.
Esteemed Archeologist and real-life Indiana Jones, Dr. Gary Stickel, will also be present at the event. He will introduce Chief Ernest Salas of The Kizh Nation Gabrieleño Band Of Mission Indians who will be conducting a ceremony to give P-22 a native name. Through your continued support we will be able to bring more community wide events to the canyon!
