An Armchair Tour of Griffith Park (En Español)
by Jorge Ochoa
CEUs applied for: ISA, NALP, PGMS, QWEL, TCIA

Our nation’s largest urban park, located at the eastern end of the Santa Monica Mountains, is the site of a major fire in 2007. The fire provided the opportunity to survey native flora long-hidden by invasive non-native vegetation and led to the rediscovery of native species not seen for many years, as well as discovery of previously unrecorded plants. These plants and various associated animals are showcased in the talk.

TLE seminars are "more advanced than typical conference seminars."
