Office of the Secretary

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell joined Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to announce Los Angeles has been selected as one of eight pilot cities under the Urban Wildlife Refuge Initiative to connect urban youth with the great outdoors. The announcement comes on the heels of President Obama's fiscal year 2015 budget request, which supports the Department's youth initiative to inspire millions of young people to play, learn, serve and work outdoors through increased investments in the Department's youth programs.
