Temescal Canyon Association Annual Meeting Set for Nov. 29

The Temescal Canyon Association will hold its annual meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 29 in the Temescal Canyon Park Dining Hall. Light refreshments will be served, the public is welcome and parking is free.

The group will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the national parks, and Dr. Seth Riley, a wildlife ecologist with the National Park Service in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, will speak. He will give a status update on the proposed Liberty Canyon wildlife crossing, and address wildlife observations and issues near Topanga State Park. His specialty is mountain lions and coyotes.

Also on the agenda: a rarely seen historic film of Los Leones Canyon, which proved to be the turning point in the fight to keep the area safe from development. Historian Randy Young will offer background stories and give a status update on what is now a state gateway park.

Members will pay tribute to the late Ethel Haydon, a founding member of TCA in 1972 and a dedicated board member.
