Southern California’s mountains and canyons are home to an abundance of wildlife.  Please respect the wildlife during your visit.  You are a guest in their home. Visitors can expect to see lizards, birds, rabbits, deer and squirrels.  Occasionally, visitors may also observe snakes, including rattlesnakes, deer, bobcats, coyotes, and in very rare occasion, mountain lions.  If you see  wildlife, keep a distance and remain calm.  If you encounter a large mammal, make noise and try to make yourself bigger.

Here are some images of animals captured on camera in our Open Space areas:
