P-22 Day at Griffith Park


On Saturday, October 22, 2016 the City of Los Angeles is celebrating its most famous mountain lion, P-22. Because in Hollywood, even our mountain lions are famous!

The festival on Saturday will be the culmination of a 40-mile, three and a half day hike led by National Wildlife Federation. On Saturday, the public can join in the last half mile of the hike, before joining the festival.

  • 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM Meet at the Old LA Zoo site and join the hikers for the last half mile to the finish line
  • 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM Kick off with the LA City Council declaring it official P-22 Day
  • 11:30 AM – 4:00 PM P-22 Festival at Griffith Park, Crystal Springs Drive (across from Visitor Center)

During the festival there will be live music, a P-22 photobooth, a chance to meet Ranger Rick, and demonstrations on topics like wildlife photography and urban wildlife gardening.

You can find the full Urban Wildlife Week schedule here, or on the Facebook event for the festival.
