Monthly HPS Management Committee Meeting: All are welcome to attend our bi-monthly management committee meeting to discuss the business side of the section and upcoming activities (including our banquet in January). All are welcome to join us and opportunities to become involved are available. The meeting begins at 7PM and the December meeting will be at Ranger House, at Griffith Park. To have items added to the agenda or to volunteer, please contact Chair: WAYNE VOLLAIRE
Directions: The Ranger House is located south of Los Feliz Blvd on the east side of Riverside Drive. It shares a large parking lot with Friendship Auditorium. From Los Feliz Blvd head south on Riverside Drive, past the soccer fields on your left to Friendship Auditorium. (Friendship Auditorium is white and the side facing Riverside Drive is a series of arches.) The entrance immediately in front of Friendship Auditorium may be the only entrance open to the parking lot. Enter here and proceed to the north end of the parking lot. The Ranger House is a smaller facility located in the extreme north end of the parking lot. The parking lot may be quite busy. Friendship Auditorium is heavily used by large groups. Do not despair: Sufficient parking spaces have been set aside for our use. But to be safe please arrive by 6:30 PM. Do not confuse the Ranger House with the Ranger Station Visitor Center commonly used by the Sierra Club for various functions.
