LA Ranger Troca is the mobile visitor center for the Santa Monica Mountains. It’s mission is to bring the parks to the people of Los Angeles County.
What We Offer
Park Rangers will facilitate a variety of engaging activities for all ages. Each program and activity will fall into three categories - Los Angeles Culture and History, Recreation, and Citizen Science.
Recreational activities aim to encourage the community to be active in unique ways. LA Ranger Troca is filled with fun items for the community to use. You can borrow a frisbee or hoola hoop, play basketball with a ranger, or grab a partner and race through LA Troca’s obstacle course. People can channel their inner scientist at LA Ranger Troca. Inspect the smaller parts of nature with our microscopes. Binoculars and field guides are available for birdwatching. Play the scat game to test your knowledge on our urban wildlife neighbors. L.A.’s culture and history has been diverse from the very beginning. We want to hear from the community about their own history. Share your story with us through journal entries, drawings, and LA Troca’s ‘People of LA’ initiative. Tell us how nature impacts you and where you find your nature.
