Every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. during the summer months, the local Park Rangers at Temescal Canyon Gateway Park in the Pacific Palisades host a free nature program, followed by a safe campfire for everyone to roast marshmallows in.
Marshmallow skewers are even provided!
All you have to do is bring a picnic blanket, your picnic dinner, chocolate/graham crackers and your undivided attention while lessons in nature are being taught. The evening often ends at 8:30 and after three servings of Smores per person. Yum!
Inviting friends along to the campfire is also a great way to disconnect with technology and reconnect with people we care about. The greenery will no doubt help you relax.
Did I mention this is a free community event? There is free street parking off Temescal Canyon and Sunset Boulevard if you would like to take a quick walk into the Park. The location also provides ample parking close to the Park’s amphitheater area where this campfire takes place; just remember to bring $7 cash and pen so that you can write your vehicle’s license plate onto the envelope the Park provides before you proceed to the campfire.
Warning: there are hidden cameras in the vicinity (at the Park entrance and the Park’s parking lot), so please make a full “stop” on your vehicle whenever you see a Stop sign. Remember, no California slow rolls or you will be sure to get a moving violation ticket mailed to you. My buddies learned this lesson the hard way 😦
