Meeting Location & Time

Woodley Avenue, Los Angeles, CA- United States
Get Directions

Date: Saturday, October 3, 2015

Time: 04:00pm - 06:30pm

Location Details: Meet in the parking area just past Wong Cricket Field.

Photo Walk Description

The Sepulveda Wildlife Reserves is home to many birds – Egrets, Herons, Ducks, Canadian Geese, Cormorants, American Coots, plus rabbits and turtles (there may be more I haven ‘t seen). Level paths and easy walk. Carpooling is recommended. We’ll meet in the parking area from 4 to 4:30. Around 4:30 (or sooner if everyone is on time) we’ll take a short walk to the lake and from there you can explore the area.

Many birds and turtles rest on the island in the center of the lake. The ducks and coots are very used to humans and will probably swim up very close to you looking for food (PLEASE DON’T FEED THE WILDLIFE) A flock of Canadian Geese will probably make a noisy appearance around sundown.

Wear comfortable, sturdy walking shoes. You will be walking in the dirt (and possible shrubs), among trees and possibly uneven surfaces around the lake. There are built in concrete benches in areas on the west side of the lake for people who need to sit. Suggested items to bring: tripod, water, a camp chair (if you like) and a flashlight (just in case). This is a wilderness area, no close bathrooms or drinking fountains.

We will go to Denny’s Restaurant on Sepulveda at Burbank Blvd. afterward to share our adventures and photos. Everyone will be responsible for paying for their own food and drink at the restaurant.

  • Thanks for coming!

    Thanks to everyone who came out to the photo walk on Saturday. We had good weather and lot’s of interesting things to shoot. It was fun sharing everyone’s photos at Denny’s afterward. I hope you all had fun.

    I haven’t been home for more than an hour since our photo walk so I haven’t had time to get the emails out to everyone. I will do that either tonight before I run out again or tomorrow night – when I don’t have to be anywhere.

    Remember to check the official schedule for deadline dates to upload your photo for consideration in the photo contest.

  • Almost time!

    Hi Everyone!
    Our walk is just a few hours away. I should be at the park a little after 4pm to greet everyone. We’ll walk over to the lake at 4:30. We’ll stay there until 6:30 then go over to Denny’s (nearby) socialize and share photos.

    Just a few reminders

    - we will be walking in the dirt so wear comfortable shoes you don’t mind getting dirty.

    - we are in a wilderness area, be careful where you walk.

    - don’t feed the animals

    - You can bring a camp chair if you want to sit.

    - bring a flashlight just in case it’s not light enough for you to see your way back to the car by the time you leave.

    - I don’t think there are any nearby drinking fountains so bring a bottle of water. The bathrooms are a bout a 5 or 10 minute walk from where we’ll be (if they’re open).

    Thank you for signing up for this photo walk. I look forward to meeting all of you.

  • Photowalk Update 9/29/15

    Hi Walkers!
    Thanks for signing up. We have 10 people so far and we still have room for more. Remind your friends that this is a free event. But you do have to be signed up to be considered for the photo contest. Each group gets to submit the best 1 photo from their group to the Worldwide photo contest.

    I should have the Flicker location posted soon where you’ll be able to upload all the photos you took at the photo walk for everyone participating in the walk (worldwide) to see. I’ll have flyers at the event with info about uploading and sharing photos.

    I strongly advise bringing a flashlight with you just in case. Sunset is around 6:30 that day and it gets dark pretty quickly. If you plan to linger after sunset you’ll want a flashlight to help you get back to your vehicle.

    We’ll be meeting at the Denny’s restaurant on Sepulveda at Burbank Blvd. after the event to socialize and share our photos. I talked to the manager there and we’ll have the back room in which to meet.

    I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!
