L.A.’s first ‘tree officer’ is trying to plant 90,000 trees by 2021.

The ambitious tree-planting project falls under the purview of Rachel Malarich, the city’s forest officer — a job that was just created in August to “oversee the growth of Los Angeles’ urban forest” as part of Garcetti’s Green New Deal. An arborist with more than a decade of experience in urban forestry, Malarich was appointed just days before the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report that emphasized the role of trees and forests in combatting climate change. The project will grow what’s already the largest urban forest in the country, making what happens in Los Angeles an important model for other cities looking to go green.

Citizens for LA Wildlife | Conservation Group Presents at LA Middle School.

The word “wildlife” often conjures images of exotic creatures in lush, foreign scapes – lions, tigers, elephants, and many other species not found on this continent.

Citizens for LA Wildlife (CLAW), a local volunteer conservation group, wants to shift that perspective; wildlife walks among us, even within the urban confines of downtown Los Angeles.

LA Observers Documented 3,249 Species for a Nature Challenge.

If you've ever asked a roommate or loved one "hey, what's that chirping outside?," then you know the answers can run the guess-tastic gamut.

Is it a mockingbird? A dove? A pigeon? A gull?

Hmm.

Well, probably not the last bird, as gulls do rather sound like gulls.

Those black bears you see in Southern California, this is how they arrived.

It may be surprising or even a little disappointing, but the iconic black bears that roam wild in the San Bernardino and San Gabriel mountains didn’t arrive there in ancient times through a process of natural migration, but instead they arrived in 1933, in crates, in the back of trucks.
