Events Calendar

The LA Urban Center events are suspended effective immediately, until further notice.

New information regarding COVID-19 is coming in daily and current guidelines from relevant health agencies indicate that gatherings of more than 10 people should be avoided. These measures are necessary to slow the transmission of COVID-19 and to minimize overload to our healthcare systems and harm to vulnerable populations. By eliminating group gatherings, the LA Urban Center hopes to contribute positively to the ultimate outcome in this uncertain situation. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Below are upcoming events sponsored by the Los Angeles Urban Center

Stop by, interact with our Center staff, researchers, environmental educators, partners and volunteers! Learn about our latest research, tools, and programs, and share your own with us. Stay longer and join us at El Pueblo to share your organization’s story to the Los Angeles community. You never know when Woodsy Owl will be encouraging us to ‘Give a Hoot’ for the environment, or when Smokey Bear will be reminding us about what we can do to help him with wildfire prevention and fire safety! Share, learn, connect, and leave energized!
