We need your help to make this landmark crossing a reality! A generous million dollar seed grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy helped launch our campaign, but we still have a long way to go to be shovel ready by 2018.
Donate now to help with the important work of our #SaveLACougars campaign.
To sign up for future volunteer opportunities contact Beth Pratt-Bergstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Support #SaveLACougars by downloading and hanging up our "Text to Donate" posters in your local community. We have three poster options to choose from.
Host a house party or a school or classroom fundraiser. P-22 (the cutout) can make an appearance.
Girl Scout Troop of the Central Coast 60218 raised $650 for the wildlife crossing!
Our speakers can present about mountain lions and the wildlife crossing at your event, in your community, or at your school—and P-22 (the cutout, at least) will accompany them!
Beth Pratt, National Wildlife Federation’s California Director, leads the #SaveLACougars campaign, and has worked in environmental leadership roles for over 20 years, and in two of the country’s largest national parks: Yosemite and Yellowstone. Although she’s lived and worked in some of the most beautiful places on the planet, and on a variety of projects involving wolves, bears, and other wildlife, she says, "Nothing has inspired me more than helping to build this landmark crossing outside of Los Angeles to help save this urban population of mountain lions.” She is also the author of the book, When Mountain Lions are Neighbors: Wildlife in Today’s California, published by Heyday in the spring of 2016.
Beth can speak at your event on a variety of topics, including mountain lions, the Liberty Canyon wildlife crossing, the #SaveLACougars campaign, and California wildlife in general. Contact her at email@example.com.
