SAMO_Park Map GA_2012Los Angeles County has over 10 million residents. It also has a great protected natural corridor call the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. This area is a great resource for anyone to learn about the habitat of Southern California. Numerous parks with their own visitor centers, open preserves, and vast trails tie the area together. The area includes land from Pt Mugu on the Pacific to the Hollywood Freeway (Highway 101). I was able to visit one of the parks when I visited my family a few days ago. My middle son, Joseph, lives a couple of miles from the Malibu Creek State Park, and the Anthony C. Beilenson Visitor Center.
