Join Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST), The Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority and Pathways for Wildlife in a discussion of local efforts to protect and enhance wildlife corridors in the South Bay. We will be having a free movie screening of the documentary film The Cat That Changed America, the story of P22, a mountain lion in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, and a $50 million effort to create a safe wildlife crossing across two of the busiest freeways in America. The film screening will be an opportunity to reflect on similar local efforts to improve crossing for wildlife. POST will be providing free pizza and lemonade for the community as we enjoy this incredible story!
This event is part of POST’s community event series. These events are open to the general public and POST donors alike, and we hope you will join us! We also curate a separate series of private events for our donor community. Find out more about how you can support POST here: openspacetrust.org/support
P22 is the most famous mountain lion in the world, living in Griffith Park, right in the heart of Los Angeles. He was born in the Santa Monica Mountains and crossed two of the busiest freeways in America, the 405 and the 101, before he settled in the park. Yet P22 is now trapped, hemmed in by freeways and the urban sprawl, with little chance of ever finding a mate. Now a new documentary film will explore his plight and the development of the wildlife crossing at Liberty Canyon in Los Angeles. Angelenos and local conservationists alike are battling to help P22 and the mountain lions of the Santa Monica Mountains, as they try to raise $50 million dollars, while facing resistance from public ignorance and the spread of rodenticides.
