radio Show 2016 - exploring some of our Last Open Spaces, The Ballona Wetlands and the historic Underwood farms.

This months show featured some of our last open spaces in Los Angeles by visiting two locations which have been preserved for us to enjoy.  On the west side of Los Angeles down by the sea in a town call Playa Del Rey,  you'll find over 600 acres of open spacious land which was preserved by a project to help keep an ecological sanctuary alive called "The Ballona Wetlands".  Today you can see hundreds of birds and wildlife now able to survive in this natural habitat.  This show will help you learn about the grassroots organization called "The Friends of The Ballona Wetlands", which was founded to help prevent a development project from destroying the wetlands and save an ecological system that is essential for the environment.

We then will head out to the far west end of the San Fernando valley to a small community called Moorpark to learn about a historic family run farm called, The Underwood Farm.  You'll hear about the activities being held each season for people of all ages, from picking out home grown produce available at the farm stand, to kids train rides, an animal farm and much more.  This hidden gem sits on over 150 acres of land and is one of our open spaces to enjoy with the whole family year round.
