Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve

On Saturday Darin and I took a trip over to the 225-acre Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve in Encino.

Ringed by mountains, rivers and streams, the Sepulveda Basin Wildlife Reserve is haven of rest for wildlife and humans alike, a welcome oasis within an urban setting. It is here where the visitor of today can get a sense of what this part of the San Fernando Valley might have been like before agriculture and urban settlement forever changed the Valley floor.

It was an incredible trip for many reasons: It’s very close to us (less than 4 miles), the place is huge so it feels unpopulated at times, there are lots of activities going on, and there was – as the name suggests – tons of wildlife to see. Oh, and it was free!

10/10 will visit again soon.
