Art meets nature meets individual action in this interactive exhibit. Through the lens of talented wildlife photographers and camera trappers, via the paint brushes and canvases of local artists, and through the stories and wisdom of the Tongva people who have stewarded this land for millennia, visitors will see our wild surroundings from an entirely new perspective.

This exhibit highlights Descanso Gardens’ place in the Hahamongna to Tujunga Wildlife Corridor, a series of passageways Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy (AFC) is working to establish for wildlife to travel between the San Gabriel Mountains and the isolated open space of the San Rafael Hills, Verdugo Mountains and Griffith Park.
