Local Parks to Talk Ranching

Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area

The Western National Parks Association will host “Ranching & Riding in the Santa Monica Mountains: A Look at our Local Ranching History,” a set of presentations about local ranching history. The two presentations will talk about the ranching history of two local park sites — King Gillette Ranch and Malibu Creek State Park.

There will be restored carriages from the 1800s and a chance to meet horses and the Mounted Volunteer Patrol team.

The presentations will take place at 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. on April 12 at the Santa Monica Mountains Interagency Visitor Center at King Gillette Ranch, 26876 Mulholland Highway, Calabasas.
