That's right, our city is home to a MASSIVE amount of awesome, and sometimes rare, life. Life that is under threat and needs to be studied. We here at the Museum have been studying the life in our hotspot for a hundred years. To continue this tradition and to take it to the next level, we are inviting you to join us. Today we are launching a new initiative that will do this, NHM Urban Safari.</p> <p><a href="http://www.nhm.org/nature/blog/la-2050-vote-nhm" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://www.nhm.org/nature/blog/la-2050-vote-nhm#comments biodiversity biodiversity hotspot Citizen Science LA 2050 Los Angeles Los Angeles river Blog Thu, 04 Apr 2013 01:25:00 +0000 Lila Higgins 731 at http://www.nhm.org/nature The L.A.
