Guest speaker Seth Riley a wildlife ecologist with the National Park Service will talk about what it means to have a mountain lion present in Griffith Park and how residents and visitors can co-exist with them safely.
A bit of backstory: P 22 was captured in Griffith Park on March 28 then released with a GPS device, reported NBC L.A.
The lecture will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Immaculate Heart High School Cafeteria, 5515 Franklin Avenue. (Use the parking lot entrance on Western Avenue.)
