The city of Los Angeles presently is the most park poor urban area in the country. Environmental organizations now are looking inward to urban Los Angeles to create more open space and parks to assist in the revitalization of neighborhoods. TPR is pleased to present this interview with Joe Edmiston, Executive Director of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, in which he discusses both SMMC's efforts to reclaim land in Los Angeles' urban areas for parks as well as the challenges of funding maintenance of these dedicated park lands under current formulas of public funding for park organizations.
