Oak Park Unified School District will screen the award-winning documentary The Cat That Changed America, as part of their effort to educate students about environmental stewardship.
This film depicts the life of P-22, the mountain lion who survived the treacherous crossing of both the 405 and 101 freeways and now lives in Griffith Park, essentially trapped by the city surrounding it. P-22 has become a “poster cat” for urban survival and has raised awareness about our obligation to establish a means for coexistence and survival of wild animals within our urban environment.
The screening is followed by a Q & A with many of those involved in making the film, including Beth Pratt-Bergstrom, California Director of the National Wildlife Federation.
