The Topanga Historical Society is excited as all get-out to announce its latest event, a pleasant afternoon picnic and presentation which will be occurring on Sunday, November 3, 2019, from 1:00 P.M. – 3:00 P.M. at the personal residence of Keith Wilbur, located at 1475 N. Topanga Canyon Blvd., next to the Theatricum Botanicum and directly across from the entrance to the Topanga Community Center.
The picnic will be a festive and relaxing afternoon of great food and drink where members of the community can come together to celebrate the fall season in the Canyon while learning some interesting local history. Please bring your best fall-time picnicky dish or something tasty to drink (we all like wine, LOL) and spend some quality time with other cool canyon dwellers. Also, please bring your folding lawn chairs if you have them. We have limited seating available so the more chairs the better.
Our featured speaker Susan Nissman is a longtime Topanga local, activist, and defender of the environment. She was the Santa Monica Mountains Watershed Management and Water Quality Lead Policy Deputy (1994-2014) for former Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky. During our picnic, Nissman will describe how she helped the County recognize that our natural, unobstructed, free-running creek was at the core of our beautiful Canyon’s ecology. We didn’t need a concrete floodway.
Interestingly enough, Keith Wilbur’s property lies directly on Topanga Creek so we’ll be AT the creek, talking ABOUT the creek. How perfect!
