Part of Urban Wildlife Week, October 16-22, the festival is the cumulation of a 3 1/2 day and more than 40 mile hike led by National Wildlife Federation’s California Regional Executive Director, Beth Pratt Bergstrom, and many partners. They will walk through the Santa Monica Mountains and Los Angeles –taking a similar path to the one that P-22 may have followed.

Their journey, tracked virtually by millions worldwide, will illustrate how the promise of connectivity is integral not just for the future of mountain lions, but for all wildlife such as salamanders, birds and butterflies. A rally at the site of the proposed wildlife crossing in Agoura Hills will kick-off the walk.
