As a volunteer hike leader for the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club, I enjoy leading discovery walks around various neighborhoods in the city.
You are invited! These are free and open to the public. However, for non-Sierra Club members a donation is optional but appreciated.
May 19, Sunday, 9:00am:
O: Farmers Market, Museum Row and La Brea Tar Pits Discovery Walk: Socially paced, 4 mi rt. with many stops to talk about the history, art and architecture of the area. “Meet me at 3rd & Fairfax!” is the trademark phrase for Farmers Market and our meeting place. We stroll through an architecturally diverse residential neighborhood, then view sections of the Berlin Wall on our way to the lamppost forest and big rock at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Next we visit woolly mammoths and saber-toothed cats at the La Brea Tar Pits, returning to Farmers Market via Museum Row, Park La Brea and Pan Pacific Park just in time for lunch. Meet 9:00am at NE corner of 3rd and Fairfax. 3 – 4 hrs. Metro Line #217 stops nearby. Wear walking shoes. Bring water, snacks, sun protection. Dress appropriately for weather.
