NWF’s first P-22 Day and Urban Wildlife Week was a huge success! The vibrancy of this initiative is due to our community of partners who have contributed in so many ways. It takes a village—and we have an incredible one.
The Los Angeles City Council officially declared October 22 as P-22 Day thanks to Councilmembers Koretz and Ryu, hikers arrived amidst a parade of school children after traveling almost 50 miles to retrace P-22’s incredible path with the Federation’s California Director Beth Pratt Bergstrom. Over 2,000 visitors attended to celebrate P-22 Day in Griffith Park, and we moved closer to our Liberty Canyon Wildlife Crossing construction goal with a $1 million challenge grant donated by the Annenberg Foundation! We are so grateful for this gift, and for all who have joined the #SaveLACougars effort.
