Street Plants: Wild Flora of Los Angeles

  • UCLA La Kretz Garden Pavilion 707 Tiverton Drive Los Angeles, CA 90095 (map)

Cities may seem to be solely the work of humans—right down to the urban landscape of street trees, ornamental plantings, and manicured lawns that were put in place by human hands. But wild plants spread through the landscape without any human help, forming a ubiquitous botanical backdrop that exists at the fringes of most concepts of nature. Join Evan Meyer, Assistant Director of the UCLA Botanical Garden, for a discussion of the wild flora of inner-city Los Angeles. This program is co-presented by LENS: Laboratory for Environmental Narrative Strategies.
