It's a fox! MRCA Construction staff Bagner was finishing up his project when he heard something rustling in the brush. I think they startled each other. Bagner was expecting to look up to see a bunny or small coyote.He's never seen a fox in his two decades working in the Santa Monica Mountains. Guess the #slyfox reference really is accurate! #LAMountains #santamonicamountains #natureinLA #foxofinstagram #foxy #chaparral #elfinforest #whatwasthat #sneaky #wow #rarelyseen
Operations Park Staff continue their brushing efforts and fire prevention in Lopez Canyon Park. Their work helps protect park structures during wildland fires. There have been several brushfires in the area. Documented by Project Manager Alfredo Leon. #LAMountains #fireprevention #brushing #allinadayswork #neverending #onlyyoucanpreventforestfires #wildlandfire #lopezcanyon #maintenance
We're installing new and updated pay stations #SaraWanTrailhead at #CorralCanyon and other parks to help those who travel without cash! These new units accept #creditcards , #debit , and cash. All parking fees directly go towards ongoing operation and maintenance of each park, including emptying the trash, removing graffiti, trail upkeep, and so much more! #Thankyou for using and supporting your parks 💗👌👍 PS- Someone accidentally shoved their debit card into the cash slot, whoops! 🤪 Sofia is seen here opening the unit to remove the stuck card to keep the machine working at this popular coastal park. PSS- $8 is some of the cheapest parking all along PCH! #LAMountains #beachview #santamonicamountains #malibu #beachparking #hikinginLA #pacificcoasthighway #malibubeach #coastalpath #coastalhike #corralcanyon #pacificcoast #upkeep #goodpurpose
Look closely to see how nature's camouflage helps protect the next generation of #blackneckedstilt from predators. #LAMountains #santamonicamountains #LARiverRecreationZones #natureinla #birdsofinstagram #birders #lariver #losangelesriver #kayakingadventures #thankyou to volunteer @sewitgoes for the great find! #TagUs in your pics while #outandabout in your parks. ・・・ “Watch where you put your hands, your feet, and your seat” when out in nature! Nearly stepped on this Black Necked Stilt nest while bird IDing on the LA River
CRISIS AVERTED! At approximately 0006 hours Los Angeles County Fire Department reported a brush fire at the intersection of #MulhollandHwy and Las Virgenes Rd. Supervising Ranger McJimpson and I, Ranger Ramsey, responded from the coastal patrol area, due to its proximity to #KingGilletteRanch . Chief Ranger Gomez acknowledged the call and also responded from Mulholland/Reseda. Upon arrival we observed a small spot being suppressed by #LACOFD crews approximately 1/4 mile south of the originally dispatched location, off of the roadway. #CaliforniaStatePark Rangers and Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area fire crews were met at the scene. The burned area appears to be part of Malibu Creek State Park. **MRCA Rangers and fire crews are staffed for 24-hour patrols during #redflag events. ** #Calabasas #malibu #SAMO #adayinthelife #firesuppression #heatwaveLA #losangeles #laheatwave #saturdaymorning #LAMountains #santamonicamountains
*AT LEAST 4 HEAT RELATED RANGER RESCUES/ASSISTS BEFORE NOON TODAY* 1- 9:30am Ranger Miller noticed a person in distress sitting in the shade at Sage Ranch. Ranger Miller assisted the nauseous hiker with water as the hiker's friends retrieved their vehicle to utilize the air conditioning. The group started their hike at 6:30am but the heat increased quicker than they anticipated. The temperature was over 100 degrees by the time Ranger Miller found them. The hiker declined further assistance. 2- 11am Ranger Reiss was alerted to a hiker who passed out on the trail in Towsley Canyon. He drove up the fire road, reached the hiker in time and cooled him off in the AC while slowly hydrating him with water and driving back down the trail. The hiker declined further treatment. 3- Rangers assisted California State Parks via Temescal Gateway Park with a heat related call. No further details at this time. 4- Ranger Young was patrolling the Muholland Drive overlooks when he crossed paths with an overheated runner. Ranger Young replenished the runner with water, no further treatment necessary. #LAMountains #santamonicamountains #SantaClarita #heatwave #fridayfeels
Why don't our brushing crews start fires with their weed whacker like other brushing crews? @stihlusa @mrcafiredivision #wildlandfirefighter #brushing #LAMountains #santamonicamountains
Clearing dry brush ahead of #4thofjuly festivities provides defensible space and minmizes fast burning fuel should a fire start nearby. @MRCAFireDivision utilizes #fireprevention methods in addition to #firesuppression to keep parks safe for visitors. #Fireworks and open space parks do not mix! . #safetyfirst #nofireworks #LAMountains #noflame #santamonicamountains #SantaClarita #urbanpark #AngelesNationalForest #onlyyoucanpreventforestfires #firedanger #wildlandfirefighters #tuesdaythoughts #readysetgo #fireseason #stihl #stihlweedeater #safeandsound #brushfire #smokeythebear #foryourconsideration
FOXTAIL ALERT! A quick wander into dry grass allows grass seeds to hitch a ride between your dog's toes or fur. Potentially dangerous if not promptly picked off, the sleek shaped seed will continue to work its way in to the skin, burrowing deeper and deeper. #Foxtails are not necessairly visible at first, see paw in top left photo. By brushing the fur apart, at least nine seeds appear! Check your pet thoroughly- nose, ears, tail, after every hike, a missed #foxtail could cause extreme damage. #santamonicamountains #LAMountains #safetyfirst #dogsofinstagram #hikingwithdogs #hikinginLA #seenonthetrail #drygrass #rescuedogsofinstagram #veterinarian #hidinginplainsight #peekaboo #lookcloser

#CAUTION ! Severe skin & allergic reactions from contact with Poodle-Dog Bush. AVOID THIS PLANT. Rangers Thomas and Reiss were patrolling the #SantaClara watershed on the backside of #AngelesNationalForest when they came across this woody shrub. Thankfully they viewed from afar as the tiny hairs from the plan can cause painful blisters lasting as long as two weeks. . . #LAMountains #donottouch #ouch #steerclear #avoid #natureinla #thatwillleaveamark #poodlebush #poodledogbush #poodlesofinstagram #allergicreaction #donttouch #plantsofinstagram #shrubs #purpleflowers #canttouchthis

Did you know MRCA operations/maintenance staff and rangers are also #wildlandfirefighters ? Refresher trainings are necessary to stay up to date on certifications and practice fire suppression techniques before the real heat of summer arrives! Imagine wearing protective gear, carrying 40+lbs of hose and tools, and hiking thru thick brush to reach the assigned flank of a raging #wildfire 🔥🔥 #readysetgo #thursdaythoughts #summersolstice #wildlandfirefighter #safetyfirst #gettinghotinhere #LAMountains #rt130 #Fireprevention #santamonicamountains #firesuppression #wereready #Nationalselfieday Photo by Alfredo Leon ***** HAD A BLAST AT OUR YEARLY RT-130 REFRESHER.... 👨🏻‍🚒🚒🚨👍🏼 #wildlandfirefighters #mrca_operations
VICTORY for MALIBU TRAIL ACCESS! LA County Superior Court Judge Amy D.

This is one way to get the message across! #Coyotes have adapted to life in the city, foraging thru trash, seizing unsuspecting domestic pets, and roaming the streets gathering more intel for the next meal. Discourage #coyote presence in your yard by keeping pets inside, securing the trash, and eliminating food sources and water.
