September 23rd at 7:00 p.m. - at the Andres Pico Adobe.
Casey Schreiner will take us into one of the largest urban wilderness parks in the world – and certainly one of the most fascinating. Who lived there before it was a park, and how did it become one? We’ll also learn what you can do in the park, its lesser-known gems, some great hikes, and what the park means to Los Angeles on the eve of its 125th birthday. Casey Schreiner is the founder of the website Modern Hiker, which has been one of the most-read hiking blogs on the West Coast since it launched in 2006. Schreiner’s first book, Day Hiking Los Angeles was published in 2016 and remains one of the most popular hiking guidebooks for Southern California, providing insight into the natural and human history of this unique bioregion. His second book, Discovering Griffith Park, is the first ever in-depth guidebook for “the greatest public space in Los Angeles” and has received wide acclaim.
Schreiner is on the Board of the Los Angeles Breakfast Club, Nature For All, and the American Hiking Society. He also works as a television writer and producer and divides his time between Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon. Join us for this fascinating speaker meeting!
