The 10 Bridges Walk
Here is another try at the classic walk invented by Dan Koeppel. Of course, there still is no centerpiece without a 6th St Viaduct but we will do the best we can. The route is different from last year – each bridge is done in a different direction and different streets and neighborhoods are emphasized. Think of it in four segments: 1st from Lincoln Cypress to the Cornfields; 2nd from the Cornfields to Union Station; 3rd from Union Station to the Indy Brewing/Dry River Brewing zone; and last from that brewery zone to Mariachi Plaza (after going south for 2 more bridges)
When: May 5th, 9 AM – 5 PM
Where: Gold Line (Lincoln/Cypress Station), 370 W Avenue 26, Los Angeles, California 90031

Designing with Palms – Talk and Book Signing
Palm trees are so iconic, especially in Southern California, that it’s easy to lose sight of their versatility in the landscape. Jason Dewees, author of Designing with Palms (Timber Press, 2018), will discuss how the sensory appeal of palms, along with their beautiful diversity—delicate understory plants, hardy shrubs, graceful trees, and bamboo-like clusters—earn them a place in well-designed gardens. A book signing follows. Free; no reservations required. Rothenberg Hall
When: May 5th, 2:30 p.m.
Where: Rothenberg Hall at The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens
