LA Against the Mountains

In 1988, John McPhee published “Los Angeles Against the Mountains.” This battle persists as LA struggles to control the fires, floods, and sediment that periodically threaten those in the mountains as well as the urban area at the base. LA has built an enormous, intricate, system to handle this threat. This talk will examine the natural processes they face as well as their attempts to “control nature.”

Dates and locations to be announced.
