Enough About Cheese

The Grilled Cheese Invitational was great fun and all, but now back to basics. In line with the Sate Parks Mission of protecting natural resources, of late LASHP has been fixated on birds – starting with the Cliff Swallows and our personal little San Juan Capistrano under the Broadway Bridge. Also, thanks to L.A. Creek Freak, this week we received a nifty guide to Animals of the Los Angeles River which includes a user friendly bird guide. Between that, and a recent field trip to the Audubon Center at Debs Park we are longing for some binos and a foray into serious birding. While we work on that, enjoy a couple of photos and LASHP’s novice attempt at bird ID. Birders out there? – Please let us know if we got it wrong, or right!

About those Goats

On Friday we left you with a little goat teaser, so, here’s the lowdown. Our ungulate friends are here to help Farmlab/Metabolic Studio clear the Anabolic Monument for a new agricultural cycle.

The Anabolic Monument is the living progression of the Not a Cornfield art project consisting of a large circle of slowly decomposing cornstalk bails. The wildflowers we are enjoying right now at LASHP were first cultivated, allowed to bloom, and drop their seeds within the sculpture. The Anabolic sculpture and annual bloom of wildflowers are a unique display of the unusual partnership between Los Angeles State Historic Park and Metabolic Studio.

So the six goats, and one very strange deer/sheep hybrid, are here to help clear the way for what’s next in the Anabolic Monument. We can’t wait to see what our neighbors have in store for us.
