Garden Club Features Wildlife Speaker

Citizens for L.A. Wildlife’s Lasken to Speak

Andrew Lasken will be the featured speaker for the Pacific Palisades Garden Club at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 1, at the Woman’s Club, 901 Haverford Ave. The public is invited.

Lasken is a Co-Director for Citizens for Los Angeles Wildlife (CLAW).

CLAW is a non-profit organization focused on advocacy, conservation, and education on behalf of wild animals and their habitat in the City of Los Angeles and beyond. The group has worked on wildlife corridors and a barn owl nesting box program.

Lasken will be presenting on LA’s unique wildlife, and the work CLAW is doing to fight the threats they face such as habitat fragmentation and secondary poisoning from rodenticide.

Prior to joining CLAW, Lasken led nature hikes for children in the San Gabriel Mountains and volunteered at a local wildlife sanctuary, where he provided behavioral enrichment for mountain lions.

He is an enthusiastic wildlife photographer, and his photos have been featured in Wild Planet Magazine. Lasken is a charter member of an association formed to protect open space in his neighborhood, and serves on a Citizen Oversight Committee for Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority.
