HPS Annual Business Meeting and Monthly 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. Opportunities to become involved are available. The meeting begins at 6:30 PM at Ranger House, at Griffith Park. To have items added to the agenda or to volunteer, please contact Chair: PAMELA ROWE
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. (Joe Young reported on September 5 that, "There is major construction going on and it is completely blocking the entrance directly in front of Friendship Auditorium. However, the entrance closest to the Ranger House is accessible. There is an opening in the K-rail (the concrete blocks used near construction zones, traffic delineators, etc) allowing vehicles to enter the parking lot, but it is easy to drive past it and miss it.") 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.
