Construction will soon start on what will become the largest wildlife crossing of its kind in the world -- and a global model for urban conservation!
The landmark ceremony to celebrate the start of construction on the Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing will take place on Earth Day, Friday – April 22 at 10:00 a.m. in Agoura Hills.
According to the National Wildlife Federation, the Wallis Annenberg Wildlife Crossing will span over ten lanes of the 101 freeway in the Los Angeles area, and when complete the crossing will be the largest in the world, the first of its kind in California, and a global model for urban wildlife conservation.
“We’re excited to announce the groundbreaking date for this hopeful and inspiring project, said Beth Pratt, California Regional Executive Director for the National Wildlife Federation. “We look forward to celebrating-either in person or virtually--with people from all over the world who rallied around our beloved LA cougar hero P-22 and the rest of this threatened mountain lion population to give them a future.”
The groundbreaking ceremony on April 22 will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., and although it is open to the public, space is limited, and registration is required. (The ceremony will also be broadcast virtually.)
And a public celebration will follow at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m... No registration is required for that event.
