What to Know

Shane's Inspiration at Griffith Park
Spying the perfect photograph of P-22?
That would also be called, quite simply, "a photograph," for every snapshot taken of the handsome mountain lion, one of Southern California's best-known residents, is of the perfect variety.
That's because just seeing this beautiful and powerful feline living in the hills above Los Angeles affirms our understanding that urban wildlife can thrive here, and does, which only helps to strengthen how we interact and care for our closest swathes of nature.
And one of those nature-amazing settings, Griffith Park, will again serve as a party place for those who adore the story of P-22, of other mountain lions in the region, and of all the critters that chirp and buzz and scurry around our Southern Californian homes.
Admission? It's as free as the breeze that surely flutters P-22's fur, from time to time, though do show with cash to buy lunch, if you like.
A P-22 photobooth (nope, the big cat won't be there, but his "likeness" will be), an urban garden wildlife installation, a ranger-helmed walk, live tunes, and lots more animal-amazing, nature-knowing to-dos will fill the five-hour span.
