    Native Species for the Parks of the Future

    Los Angeles has more park acreage than any other city in the US, but our parks are threatened by climate change and ongoing drought conditions. The Los Angeles Parks Foundation will use an LA2050 grant to expand its Native Species Nursery, located in Griffith Park, to supply diverse, resilient native plant species for free to parks across the city for free. The project will also provide education to city park staff and the community at large to care for these plants and support the installation of a model Miyawaki Forest.
